It pays to fly safe, literally.

USAIG’s Safety Bucks program pays operators enrolled in the insurance company’s Preferred Policyholder Program up to $30,000 per year for flight and maintenance training.

The latest Safety Bucks recipient is John Bohr, a pilot for BP Capital.

Since instituting the program 14 years ago, USAIG (Booth No. 1911) has contributed more than $5,932,650 for ongoing training for pilots and mechanics, according to the New York City-based company. Offered in partnership with Bell Helicopter and several other helicopter manufacturers, currently about 50 helicopter operators and 175 helicopters are enrolled in the program.
