Judging by the differential in insurance costs between an -8 and and -8A, you would make the insurance companies very unhappy if you were able to successfully stamp out all nosewheels.

The insurance guys are either pocketing all of that extra money from you taildragger drivers, or you guys are ground looping a lot more than you're letting on.

Default Lee Bottom Nose Wheel Aircraft

If Lee Bottom Stamps out Nose Wheel aircraft there would be a very small turn-out at the fall Fly-IN. Yes I have owned tail wheel aircraft just enjoying flying nose wheel RV's.

I keep hearing this but I don't see any significant difference between NW and TW insurance for the same qualifications and same hull value.

If you don't walk into something once in a while, you're not walking enough!
