Pilot and Aviation Insurance Testimonials
"When it comes to flying, having an insurance agent that is dedicated, conscientious and competent is essential. Having flown professionally since 1967, I have worked with lots of agents but none have earned my trust and confidence like Rick and his staff at Leading Edge Insurance Agency, Inc. They have proven time and again to be the best and that's why we place our pilots in their hands for aviation insurance."
In our industry I have found that insurance writing is frequently handled in a clerical and un-aggressive manner. Rick's diligence and professional aviation credentials along with his unique rapport with underwriters have been instrumental in allowing us to upgrade our aviation business as efficiently and safely as possible. It has been our experience that aviation insurance is written using purely objective actuaries. Our experience with Rick is exceptional due to his representation of our company and clients with underwriters and we always receive preferred treatment by the insurance companies.
In addition to writing all of our company business over the past decade we also refer all of our aircraft-owner clients direct to Rick for their own aviation insurance. We do this with great confidence and satisfaction knowing that our clients are placed in the best possible hands in regard to their aviation insurance.

We would like to recommend an agency which has served us extremely well for many years. This agency is Leading Edge Insurance with president Rick Ross. They are the most dedicated, professional, customer-oriented agents I have ever had the pleasure to meet. They work very hard to find the best insurance coverage at the best possible price. They have saved our company thousands of dollars in premiums and are right there when a loss occurs to help recover as quickly as possible.
Leading Edge is like having a partner in your business as they take a personal interest in making sure you get the best service possible.

Rick's willingness to go to bat for us with the underwriters is extremely helpful. It truly is refreshing to have service availability through the years and not just at renewal time when their only goal is a signature and cost transferred. I believe that I can sum it all up by saying that it is a pleasure to work with an agent that has expertise in aviation and is accessible. This is why we have stayed with him, over the years.

During our working relationship Rick has always been very responsive to any and all policy needs, including crew changes and accident claims. Further I have always felt that he has attempted to provide the best price possible in these very demanding times in our industry.

Rick Ross with Leading Edge Aviation Insurance has been our aviation broker...since our inception in 1993. Rick has also been able to procure the best possible coverage under the best possible terms. We look at Rick as an advisor and view him as part of our team. We have provided many challenges for Rick with the number of pilots that we have in our operations. He has always been able to help us qualify them with our insurance carrier. He has provided us with the guidance in our pilot selection and training processes. His credibility with the underwriters has made the difference in getting the coverages we require and having workable solutions on our pilot training requirements. It is obvious to us that Rick is well respected by the underwriters and he has great credibility with them. This is something that is developed over time by demonstrating knowledge of the industry, honesty, and integrity in dealing with the underwriters and us.
Aerostar Executive Aviation Corporation
In our 40 year history in the aviation business we have had the experience of dealing with various different agents and insurance companies. Our experience, until we met Rick, is that they all promise the world until they have your check. Once your check is in their account, the service from that point goes down hill.
This is a very competitive business and we are dealing with a fleet of turbo jet aircraft worth tens of millions of dollars and with hundreds of millions of dollars in liability. Many of our clients have their entire businesses on the line with the liability of their aircraft. We can't just trust any agent to deal with these potentially multi-million dollar accidents that can take down their entire net worth if a mistake were to be make. We have put our faith and trust in Rick because he has earned it and never lets us down.
