I currently rent from my flying club and plan to purchase aircraft renters’ insurance. That would cover bodily injury, property damage and aircraft damage liability. I have a personal umbrella policy which excludes aircraft renal/use/etc. This appears to be the practice among all the major insurance carriers and they will not offer coverage for aircraft use (I called GEICO, Amica and checked a few others on line).

Please do away with the pop-ups on the page.  I will always leave a page with pop-ups.  I pay to be part of AOPA for the advocacy and ease of information access.  A full screen pop-up asking if I have a question is not helpful.
I am curious what happens to someone who cannot pass the color blindness part of a Class III FAA physical.  I have perfect color vision, but was just curious.
