AVIAÂ expands members' insurance

Posted 17 January 2019 · Add Comment

International group purchasing organisation (GPO) for business aviation, AVIAÂ, is expanding its suite of insurance offerings for its growing membership of aircraft owners and operators.

The goal is to offer lower costs, increased efficiencies, and reinvestment into risk management programmes for their members. 

AVIAÂ’s insurance offerings include hull and liability, but also employee benefits, Workers Compensation, Travel Accident, Loss of Pilot License, and Management Liabilities. And importantly, the insurance service pillar will be seamlessly integrated within the company’s broader managed procurement services offering, which covers fuel, maintenance, FBO handling, crew training, satellite services and more.
AVIAÂ has appointed industry insurance specialist Taylor Turney (right) as dedicated VP of Insurance to lead the initiative, in response to increased enquiries from their members looking to make savings on a critical fixed cost spend. Additionally, these members are eager to improve operations and reduce costs through a greater emphasis on risk management and safety, key values of the AVIAÂ community.
Taylor, who is based in Los Angeles, has a degree in Computer Information Systems and brings over 12 years of experience in business insurance brokerage to AVIAÂ.  He has worked with multi-national corporations to help address their risk management needs across a wide spectrum of products, services and territories. He Said: “Insurance is a critical offering, which uses aggregation, transparency, industry expertise, and proprietary algorithms to streamline the procurement process for both operators and vendors.

“As well as securing cost and time savings for our members, we are bringing contract certainty to protect their operations too.  We thoroughly vet a member’s insurance contract before making any recommendations. The goal is to make their insurance purchasing experience as straightforward, transparent, and painless as possible.”

AVIAÂ operators gain improved business intelligence and economies of scale, allowing them to get the best value for key operational items.  Suppliers receive committed volume without the overhead, reduced friction costs around transactions and insights into customer behavior and purchasing patterns.  

Established by Hangar8 founder Dustin Dryden and GPO expert James Hall, AVIAÂ uses aggregation, transparency, industry expertise, and proprietary algorithms to streamline the procurement process for both operators and vendors. 

The business is headquartered in Irvine, California, with offices in Park City, Utah and in the UK at London Oxford Airport.
