AVIAA's motto is to "fly smarter, spend less," and AVIAA believes they do just that. As an aviation procurement specialist, they operate by investing in group purchasing for our aviation members. They use our collective buying power to help their members obtain fuel, training, and flight insurance at affordable rates. AVIAA monitors and analyzes aviation supply chains in order to negotiate the best deals for their members. AVIAA offers procurement solutions for all of their members so that they can track their spending all in one place with detailed reports. The data is specific to your needs, so you only see the supplies that pertain to your particular aircraft(s) that you fly. Their easy-to-read dashboard allows you a snapshot view to show you how you're doing and areas you could improve.

AVIAA Insurance Services takes this same mindset and applies it to aviation insurance. Their procurement solution for your aircraft operations includes complete comprehensive coverage that includes hull and liability insurance, workers compensation, travel accident, loss of pilot license, and much more. Their aircraft insurance coverage solutions offer a competitive solution to your insurance coverage needs. If you have a fleet to insure, AVIAA can save you thousands per year, per aircraft. You will recoup your membership fees as AVIAA negotiates on your behalf for the best value.

AVIAA loves to partner with new businesses who can offer exceptional services to their members. The new partnership between AVIAA and LOFT affords AVIAA the opportunity to send their members to Citation type rating training at LOFT for a great price and receive top-notch training. LOFT's CJ and Cessna Citation training will help the pilot's insurance to go down once completed due to the additional education. To LOFT, this is a match made in heaven.
