Starr Aviation, a division of Starr Insurance Companies, has launched the Starr Safety Partnership, a network of service providers focused on enhancing safety for Starr-insured pilots and aircraft owners and reducing losses.
The services, offered at a discount for Starr customers, includes more than a dozen providers of everything from crisis training to maintenance to risk-reduction technologies. The services apply to each phase of aircraft ownership – from acquisition through safe and cost-efficient operation to the sale of an aircraft.
Services include aircraft evaluation, engine inspection, safety and egress training and in-flight medical, an advanced bird-avoidance system, and upset prevention and recovery training (UPRT).
“This partnership is unique in how it’s configured to focus on the entire aircraft ownership lifecycle,” Kyle Sparks, Starr Aviation senior vice president and chief underwriter. “Also unique is how it serves the aircraft owner’s needs as well as those of the pilot with services selected for their ability to increase intangible as well as tangible operational savings.”
Reducing aircraft downtime is one of the key intangible savings, because company aircraft are often critical assets maintained to help facilitate business development and growth.
Andrew Madison, Starr Aviation assistant vice president and director of loss control, said: “This partnership allows Starr clients to easily expand their experiences and pilot skills while promoting safety, safety management system facilitation, and training. It also gives the aircraft owner an extra measure of safety assurance.”
