NEW YORK--May 5, 2003--AIG Aviation, Inc., a member company of American International Group, Inc. (AIG), today announced that it is now endorsing Civil Air Patrol (CAP) liability insurance coverage onto the non-owned aircraft damage liability insurance form.

"The Civil Air Patrol plays a vital role in our nation's safety and security," said Jim Anderson, vice president of AIG Aviation, Inc. "However, with recent changes to Civil Air Patrol regulations, CAP pilots are facing possible liability exposures in the course of performing their official duties. Understanding the risk exposures under the new regulations, we are pleased to provide this much needed coverage for CAP pilots."

Civil Air Patrol liability coverage is optional coverage that provides protection for physical damage to a non-owned aircraft that a CAP pilot may be responsible for during official CAP missions.

The CAP coverage is now integrated into eLAD, AIG Aviation's online quoting and policy issuance system for general aviation aircraft, allowing producers to provide a quote to their insureds in minutes.

Operators should contact their broker for details about CAP coverage. It is available though any independent insurance broker appointed by AIG Aviation. Owners and pilots looking for an AIG Aviation appointed broker should contact AIG Aviation at 404-249-1800, or by email at www.aigair@aig.com.
