Starr Aviation (Starr), a division of Starr Indemnity & Liability Company, recently partnered with the Society of Aviation and Flight Educators (SAFE) and Redbird Flight Simulations (Redbird) to reward participation of insureds in the Pilot Proficiency Project™. Available at major aviation events, the Project offers a series of FAA WINGS-approved seminars and simulator training scenarios that address common causes of general aviation accidents.

Qualified Starr policyholders participating in Project seminars and/or simulator training will receive the benefits of the Accident Forgiveness Endorsement waiving any premium increase due to an accident occurring after the certification (certain overriding events excluded).

Jim Anderson, Senior Vice President of Starr Aviation’s Light Aircraft division said, “We appreciate the great work SAFE and Redbird are doing with the Pilot Proficiency Project, and want to further incentivize participation by our insureds. Participation in this project clearly demonstrates a pilot’s commitment to safety, and Starr wants to reward this kind of effort.”

The first opportunity for pilots to earn the Accident Forgiveness Endorsement will be during Sun-n-Fun in Lakeland, Florida, April 9–14, 2013. Pilots are encouraged to sign up for an opportunity to “fly” one of eleven challenging scenarios in Redbird’s FMX full-motion simulator at the SAFE Tent (NE-006). Pilots are also encouraged to attend project safety seminars, which will be conducted in the Florida Air Museum.

SAFE developed the Pilot Proficiency Project™ in 2010, partnering with Redbird to enable pilots to receive relevant recurrent training. SAFE represents more than 700 of the nation’s top aviation educators, and provides resources to assist educators in developing skilled, knowledgeable and safe aviators.
