This year, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predict that the hurricane season, which runs from June through November, will likely see 13 to 20 named storms. At least six will become hurricanes, and three to five categorized as major hurricanes with winds of more than 100 miles (177 kilometers) per hour.
Each year, as we head into the summer and fall, hurricanes become more of an issue for pilots and their aircraft. This seasonal issue is important to keep in mind.
Most insurance coverage provides for reimbursement of cost associated with moving your aircraft out of an area under hurricane warning, but not all insurance carriers provide coverage in an area where a hurricane watch has been issued 24-48 hours before landfall. This is why renewing or placing coverage beforehand is key.
