What/where have you been able to find any type of Gyro, specifically Nano insurance? Full coverage I am guessing it out of the question, but what about Liability? Please share anything thing you might have found in the past. I know at Oshkosh when I was speaking with the Autogyro folks, they had to form a club because full coverage insurance on a Cavalon was 12,000 bucks, ouch!

US Ultralight Association (USUA) lists First Flight Insurance Group as their source for offering 3rd Party Liability Insurance. I went to First Flight Insurance Group's website through the USUA link and found absolutely noting for ultralights or anything that of the sort. The instruction says to select Airsports from the Applications Menu. I'm not sure when USUA posted this information, but there is no such menu. I only managed to find a Q&A page about the 3rd Party Liability Insurance dated 2018, but not through the web portal. I filled out their contact form and will update if I find out anything.
Anyone else finding something through USUA?
I know you can get liability for ultralights (Part 103) from USUA. They've most likely never insured a gyro, but if they insure ultralights then...
In Minnesota, if you can't get aircraft insurance, they have what is called Minnesota Joint Underwriting Association. I contacted Avemco and had them send me an email stating they don't insure Gyrocopters. The MJUA requires a rejection letter. Then they will give you liability for about $200 a year. Forget what the total coverage is but I think it's around 100K. This is the only way I could get it registered in Minnesota. Hope this helps anyone in Minnesota.
Jeff, I've been calling around and gyro insurers are getting scarce. Some private fields and airports are requiring it for regular users/hanger renters. I called EAA's recommended one and he rough estimated closer to 10K than 2k just for liability. Didn't sound too interested. I'm still waiting for others to get back.
