Forward Vision Systems, Inc., and Aggressive
Insurance, a Texas-based aircraft insurance company, announced this week
at EAA AirVenture 2010 that aircraft equipped with Forward Vision’s
DO-160E-certified enhanced vision system (EVS) will be eligible for a
discount on their policies.
Effective immediately, Aggressive will
provide a five-percent credit applicable to both liability and hull
coverage premiums when this approved EVS system is installed. A maximum
credit of 15 percent will be applied when up to three safety features
(i.e., EVS system, aircraft parachute, and airbag systems) are installed
in the aircraft.
Patrick Farrell, CEO of Forward Vision
thanked Aggressive Insurance for recognizing his company’s EVS can help
make flying safer for pilots and their families: “Recognizing Forward
Vision EVS as an enhancer of safety and providing such a significant
savings for operators will reward those aircraft owners for their efforts
to reduce risk in their flying.”
Richard Asprey, president of Aggressive
Insurance, said, “The Forward Vision EVS typifies the benefits of this
type of equipment.
“Once again, Aggressive is proud to be a
leader in responding to advancing safety technology and will continue to
recognize those consumers who utilize such EVS devices as well as AmSafe’s
airbag systems and BRS’s Ballistic Recovery System parachutes.”
