Ask your insurance broker for a quote from Global Aerospace

SCAA encourages its airport members to ask their insurance broker to obtain a quote from Global Aerospace for its property and casualty insurance. Global Aerospace created this program for partnership with associations and SCAA was the first association to offer the program to qualified members. Benefits of this program include a guaranteed premium for two years (if no losses over $5,000), free access to safety webinar training, and if you choose, you can continue to use your current broker. As part of the insurance program, exclusive to airport government members, Global Aerospace will pay your $250 Government Membership the first year, ensuring all airports have access to the program. This program is also available for Part-139 airports. For more information please download the flyer below.  Thank you again for your support. For more information, click on the below flyer.
