NationAir (Booth No. N5311) announced at NBAA 13 that it has created an aviation product liability division, to be lead by Jamie Benthusen, who has a background of 15 years working for aviation products manufacturers and OEM distributors.
The company, founded in 1978, has pioneered specialized insurance programs, with clients in 30 countries worldwide. As an aviation-only brokerage, NationAir is uniquely positioned to serve product manufacturers and suppliers, according to Jeffrey Bauer, president of NationAir. He explained that many OEMs don’t realize that they are buying products liability insurance from wholesalers. “WithNationAir, there’s no middleman,” he said. “We provide direct communication, and we can also advocate directly with underwriters. Our products liability division is part of our commitment to provide the full spectrum of risk management for our aftermarket aviation suppliers. It is a natural progression to extend our services through the supply chain.”
A NationAir product liability policy includes a claims advisor, complimentary contract review and certificate management service, and preferred rates from the company’s partners covering emergency response planning, legal counsel and crisis communications consulting.
