NBAA Announces New Workers' Compensation Insurance Program for Members

As one of the Association's latest efforts to help Members in a tough economy, NBAA recently announced the introduction of the NBAA Workers Compensation Insurance Program that is exclusively for NBAA Members. This program is underwritten by Phoenix Aviation Managers and managed by NationAir Aviation Insurance.

"As our Members seek to reduce operating costs in today's challenging economic environment, we believe that this program will provide high-quality workers' compensation insurance at a competitive price," said NBAA President and CEO Ed Bolen.

In addition to the goal of reducing the cost of workers' compensation insurance premiums for NBAA Members, the program benefits the organization itself. A small, but meaningful portion of the premium proceeds paid into the program will come back to NBAA to fund its mission of assisting companies that rely on general aviation aircraft to make their businesses more efficient, productive and successful.

"We are honored to have been officially recognized by NBAA as the licensee to administer this money-saving program to the general aviation community," said NationAir President Jeff Bauer. "After detailed discussions with NBAA and Phoenix Aviation Managers, we have been able to design a program that addresses the unique needs of aviation businesses."


“In today's challenging economic environment, we believe that this program will provide high-quality workers' compensation insurance at a competitive price.”
