Product description

The third edition of "Introduction to Aviation Insurance and Risk Management" has provided the opportunity to improve the book and extend its life into the 21st Century. Old material has been deleted and newer, more timely material added. Unlike the previous editions, a number of industry professionals have contributed to the new version. Despite these changes the primary purpose of the book remains the same - to introduce the basic principles of insurance and risk with their special application to the aviation industry. It has been designed for several similar, yet distinct audiences: the college student, corporate pilots or fixed base operators, and individuals in the insurance business.
