NEW YORK, January 22, 2001 - AIG Aviation, Inc., a member company of American International Group, Inc. (AIG), has introduced an insurance program to provide coverage for Fractional Aircraft Owners.* Fractional Aircraft Ownership, also referred to as Fractional Jet Leasing or Jet Time Sharing, is the fractional purchase or lease of an aircraft by an individual or company.
AIG Aviation's new customized Fractional Ownership Program offers aircraft owners a broad coverage package, providing greater risk management flexibility.

The Fractional Ownership Program combines four distinct coverages relevant to the aircraft owner, which can be individually priced and purchased. A specialized program for the aviation insurance market, the Fractional Ownership Program from AIG Aviation provides coverages for:

Fractional Aircraft Ownership Excess Liability - Coverage provided in excess of the primary aircraft policy for aircraft liability and non-owned aircraft liability.
Non-Owned Aircraft Liability - Non-owned aircraft exposures outside the fractional aircraft owner's aircraft management company's policy.
Contingent Aircraft Physical Damages & Liability - Provided as drop down coverage in selected instances where the primary policy would not provide coverage, or in selected cases where the management company voids coverage for the fractional owner.
Diminution of Value - Coverage provided for reduced resale value of aircraft, if the aircraft has physical damage to the airframe.
