310 as multi-engine trainer

Posted by Dean Brock on Mar 12, 2018 7:38 am

I would like to get some responses from the insurance community and multiengine instructor community.  These people are the 'stakeholders' re the safety aspects of this question:
Is the Cessna 310 a good choice for a multi trainer in a flight school environment, and is it generally insurable within reason?

I’ll stick with the bottom line of my original answer — if you’re running a flight school, it’s not a good choice for your ME trainer.  Beyond that, it’s all situations.

I insured a 310 for $60,000 hull value in november. It was a commercial policy for dual instruction only and P&B. I was a zero time multi pilot and low total hours CFI CFII. My cost was $6,100 for the first annual premium. I now have over a hundred hours in the airplane and am a MEI as well and just requoted the policy at $75,000 hull value and myself as an instructor  at $3,700 per year.
