Do I Need Title Insurance if I’m Paying For My Aircraft Without Financing?

Question: I'm in the process of buying my first airplane. I'm planning to pay for it without financing. Do I need title insurance?  If so, where can I get it?

Answer: While title insurance may not be necessary, it does help with peace of mind. Especially when purchasing an older aircraft that may have gone through several ownership changes. Title insurance will protect you in the event a prior registration or bill of sale was filed incorrectly. AIC can assist in acquiring title insurance if you wish to purchase it. At the very least a thorough title search should be conducted prior to purchase through one of the aircraft title an escrow companies in Oklahoma City. AOPA members receive a discount through our strategic partner, Aero-Space Reports, for using their title and escrow services. Please feel free to reach back out to us if any other questions should arise during your purchase, we’d be happy to help.
