Starr Aviation, a division of Starr Insurance Companies, has announced the launch of the Starr Safety Partnership, a network of service providers that aims to enhance safety for Starr-insured pilots and aircraft owners and reduce losses.
The services, from more than a dozen providers, are offered at a discount for Starr customers. Services include everything from crisis training to risk-reduction technology. They apply to each phase of aircraft ownership, from acquisition through safe and cost-efficient operation to sale.
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.
“This partnership is unique in how it’s configured to focus on the entire aircraft ownership life cycle,” said 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 tangible as well as intangible operational savings.”

One of the key intangible savings is reducing aircraft downtime, Starr said.
“This partnership allows Starr clients to easily expand their experiences and pilot skills while promoting safety, safety management system facilitation, and training,” said Andrew Madison, Starr Aviation assistant vice president and director of loss control. “It also gives the aircraft owner an extra measure of safety assurance.”
