May 1, 2008, Chicago,
IL and Salt Lake City, UT, April 29, 2008 – Evolution Insurance Brokers
announced a new “individual” liability insurance product to the
aviation industry. The coverage offers customized, one-of-a-kind,
individual protection plans to helicopter pilots and other
aviation-related roles – an industry first. Branded as Xinsurance.com,
and entitled, “Pilot Shield”, the new offering is not a substitute for
traditional insurance, but rather fills the gaps of other insurance
coverage, providing “individual” scheduled coverage for virtually
ANYTHING! This coverage includes defense and indemnity for a claim or
incidents resulting in a lawsuit. Until now, helicopter pilots have
not been offered this type of liability protection.
Rick J. Lindsey, President and CEO of Prime, said, “We have over 28
years of experience in excess, surplus and hard-to-place insurance, and
have slowly entered the aircraft market over the past four years.
Helicopter pilots are just one class we feel is misunderstood and
unfairly excluded from other traditional or legacy carrier plans. EIB
is uniquely qualified to handle all kinds of aviation insurance, not
just to pilots, but owners, fractional owners and operators as well.
We can provide a quote for any related business operations and
Lindsey added that, “EIB enjoyed tremendous exposure at the Heli
Expo 2008 in Houston. While there, we quickly discovered we could be a
valuable resource to helicopter owners, pilots, Certified Flight
Instructors, Aircraft Maintenance Technicians and others looking for
individual liability protection.”
With the introduction of Pilot Shield and a Garmin 495 GPS giveaway,
the EIB booth was a popular spot at the annual trade show. Craig Dixon
of Arizona, and Thomas R. Bencin, Jr. of Ohio were the two GPS winners.
