A pilot I spoke to today told me he read something from AOPA recently about the insurance rate increases many owners are seeing.  He said the article spoke of added requirements for pilots over 70 years of age.  I had read recently that 80 was the age that these more strict requirements became common.

Does anyone remember this article and can they tell me where to locate it?

Thanks.  The person who told me about the article thought it said pilots over age 70 were being subjected to more strict underwriting.  I had always thought age 80 was a more common line for insurance companies.  I didn’t see any specific age in the article, just a reference to “older pilots”.  Did I miss something?

I see the age reference now.  It’s in the sidebar.

Yep, you got it.  Tip # 3 in that sidebar.
