   Gallagher Aviation’s Leadership in Cirrus Aviation Insurance

  • The insurer of choice for Cirrus Owners and Pilots Association
  • Your dedicated advocate with underwriters
  • More than 700 Cirrus aircraft insured
  • Active members of the Cirrus Owners and Pilots Association
  • Dynamic supporter of COPA education and training efforts
  • Specialists in Cirrus recurrent and transition training

  NationAir and COPA – A History of Advocacy and Success.

NationAir’s relationship with Cirrus dates back to the late 1990s. At that time, most insurance underwriters were seriously uninformed about Cirrus; some even thought they were experimental. NationAir began a successful education program to help insurers learn about your aircraft. A few years later, NationAir redoubled its education efforts after a series of accidents. We have proudly worked with COPA in the implementation of the CPPP program.

 NationAir and now Gallagher insures more than 700 Cirrus. We’ve been committed to COPA from the start, with perfect attendance at every COPA Migration since they began. We’ve also supported COPA financially, and are passionate advocates for Cirrus owners with underwriters. We feel very strongly that our commitment, our expertise, our service and our enthusiasm for Cirrus will help you get the best possible insurance for your plane.  We will contunue this commitment under the Gallagher Aviation name. 

More than just a broker - your trusted advisor

At Gallagher Aviation, we serve as your advisor, assisting you with recurrent training and even transition planning and training as you move to other aircraft. As an independent broker, we insure all types of aircraft, not just Cirrus. And our independence means we can advocate for you more effectively without any official ties to a manufacturer.Our history with Cirrus and COPA gives us the perspective, the expertise and the influence with underwriters you won’t find elsewhere.
