About

Welcome to Specialty Aviation Underwriters,

Who We Are
For more than 20 years, Specialty Aviation Underwriters has been a premier insurer of aviation products. We were established to deliver quality insurance for a unique blend of specialty aircrafts within the aviation community. Over the years, many traditional aviation underwriters have lost interest in these specialty markets, but SAU proudly continues to operate throughout the United States. Our home office is located in Addison, Texas.

On October 1st 2014, SAU was acquired by NSM Insurance Group, the national leader of industry-specific insurance program administration. This transition has allowed us to expand our capacity, underwriting appetite and territorial reach, while continuing to provide excellent customer service, expert underwriting, and superior coverages for the aviation industry. It has also given our clients access to the many other programs NSM offers to accommodate their insurance needs.

Who We Serve
SAU’s first priority will always be our clients, so we utilize our team’s industry expertise to develop coverages that fit your unique needs. Using our comprehensive knowledge of the industry’s spread and depth, we are able to continually create high-quality services that cater to its variety.
