Re: MAAC Insurance update

To sum this up,

Insurance is great, but remember if you're having fun; It's not covered

Re: MAAC Insurance update

Yeah..OK! Why don't you put up the 10 million in a fund for us so we can all fly and enjoy the hobby without the insurance hassle. Insurance companies are there to make a profit, of course. We are a capitalist society. That is how most of us choose to operate. If they make so much buy some shares, purchase the insurance, and win both ways!

Re: MAAC Insurance update

Once and for all, can we put this to bed?
MAAC has always provided the best coverage available for the membership. Claims do get paid. MAAC absorbs $4500 of the $5000 deductible on each claim. MAAC does its best to respond to all member needs. The organization is run by volunteers, who work tirelessly. The Insurance Advisory Group has obtained optimum available coverage after months of negotiation. Larry Rouselle and the other insurance professionals within the group have done a great job. The details are below in an email I received from Larry.
Try saying "Thanks Larry & colleagues". That is all that is required.


Just in case you are not yet aware, our insurer has agreed to cover us for our model activities outside of the "organized" environment.

Please refer to the PDF file of our policy on the web site . here is the link. The page numbers are the PDF file pages. .

Changed/removed item details:

pg. 4 - the words "while participating in the activities of the association" will be removed from the policy wording
pg. 38 - Additional Insured Endorsement - the words "at events and activities organized by the named insured" will be removed from the policy wording

There are no attached rules or restrictions.

Notices will be in the next magazine. Richard Barlow has posted something in the news section on the MAAC web site as well.
