Purchasing liability insurance for a homebuilt airplane is much like purchasing insurance for any production aircraft. Most insurance companies will quote on RVs, with the exact premium depending on the pilot’s total experience, time in type and the other usual considerations.
Historically, hull insurance has been more difficult to obtain, but with the significant numbers of RVs now flying, several companies will readily provide this coverage as well.
Insurance covering the project in the shop, before it reaches flying status, has been quite difficult to find. Almost no homeowner’s insurance policy will cover aircraft or aircraft parts. However, a couple of companies have found it worthwhile to provide this as well.
