Kassel Aviation Insurance was formed in 2017 as a full service aviation insurance brokerage firm specializing in corporate and commercial aviation.

Our clients have told us that having an insurance expert that they can count on day in and day out for risk management, contractual "advice" and advocacy helps them sleep well at night, knowing they have a partner. Through direct appointments with every aviation insurance company and additional companies that can place supporting lines of insurance products, Kassel Aviation Insurance is able to arrange a full array of solutions for their clientele.
