15 December 2018

PARSIPPANY, N.J., Dec. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Aerospace, Inc., a leading provider of aerospace insurance, is pleased to announce two enhancements to its exclusive Aircraft Breakdown Assistance program.

A mechanical problem with your aircraft while away from home can be an owner’s worst nightmare. It’s a helpless feeling to be stranded in an unfamiliar place and forced to depend on mechanics and advisers you don’t know or trust. Global Aerospace has developed a solution to provide you with peace of mind while away from home – the Aircraft Breakdown Assistance program fueled by Savvy Aviation is now available to US Global Aerospace policyholders at no additional cost!

The program, launched in January 2018 to its U.S. light aircraft policyholders, will now also be available to Global Aerospace policyholders with kit, experimental, antique, rare and unique aircraft.

In addition, upon renewing their policy in 2019, qualified Global clients who signed up for the Savvy program in 2018 will be automatically registered for another year of protection, at no additional cost. New policyholders in 2019 will also be eligible to sign up for the Aircraft Breakdown Assistance program at no additional cost.

Marilena Sharpell, senior vice president and underwriting and operations executive at Global Aerospace comments, "We are pleased to be able to expand upon this valuable program to include our kit and experimental aircraft clients." Ms. Sharpell adds, "Providing automatic renewals seamlessly to clients that have already enrolled in the Aircraft Breakdown Assistance program, further demonstrates the importance we place on bringing this valuable protection to our clients."

The Aircraft Breakdown Assistance program supported by Savvy Aviation is available at no additional cost and provides professional maintenance management, consulting and breakdown assistance for owner-flown general aviation airplanes. A mechanical problem with an aircraft while away from home can be an owner's worst nightmare. The Aircraft Breakdown Assistance program provides Global policyholders with 24/7 access to a dedicated toll-free assistance hotline and experienced Savvy Airframe and Powerplant and Inspection Authorization (A&P/IA) technicians. Savvy technicians will troubleshoot mechanical problems and help owners determine whether an aircraft is safe to fly home. If repairs are needed, they will help find a local, trustworthy maintenance provider and work with them to get pilots safely, and quickly, back in the air.
