  • LL Johns & Associates celebrates 40 years

    40 Years - 1971-2011Decades as aviation insurance specialists… A lifetime as enthusiasts
    This is more than just a slogan at LL Johns. A love of aviation is in the company’s blood. Larry Johns, the founder of LL Johns, has been flying since 1963 and remains an avid pilot today. He passed his love of aviation on to his son Steve, a pilot since 1991. As the years progressed, the passion for flying evolved into a passion for the aviation industry…the camaraderie its community shares, the spirit of entrepreneurialism that drives it and the freedom it offers. This passion for aviation and strong principles has led the company over four decades to provide exceptional aviation insurance services and remarkable business practices.

    In 1971, Larry established LL Johns & Associates with the goal of insuring any and all aviation exposures. He believed that niche marketing was the way to build a successful business. With his passion for aviation, it was only natural that he specialized in insurance for airplanes, airports, aircraft dealers, and other aviation related businesses. Larry’s vision was to build a team of professionals highly trained in aviation insurance, offer service of the highest caliber, and operate on Biblically based principles. He wanted to prove that integrity, honesty and obedience to those principles would lead to a successful business. Out of this belief, the LL Johns Core Values were developed…

    The company insured its first client in February, 1971. That same year, it located offices adjacent to the Oakland – Pontiac Airport and has been very much involved with the insurance needs of various businesses at the airport since that time. In the past forty years, LL Johns has grown from one staff member to more than fifteen with clients throughout the United States and is expanding worldwide. Steve Johns joined the company on a part-time basis in 1986, learning the various aspects of the business. He became agency manager on January 1st, 1989 when he began working full-time. Today, Steve is President of the company and has developed a deep passion for the aviation industry and providing the best insurance to clients as they pursue business in today’s fast-paced global economy.

    As independent insurance agents, LL Johns believes its purpose is to provide clients with the best in aviation related insurance coverage. They do this by carefully matching the needs of clients with the capabilities of the various insurance companies they represent. With these resources, they are able to provide the best and most reasonably priced coverage available. The company’s worldwide client base includes corporations, private owners, flying clubs, traffic observation and advisory services, fixed base operators, and various other types of aviation exposures. LL Johns’ drive to serve clients has motivated the company to develop, in conjunction with the insurance underwriters, several new types of coverage to meet the specific needs of clients over the years.

    The LL Johns’ team members maintain a comprehensive knowledge of the ever-changing aviation insurance industry. They are dedicated to being professionals that truly care about assisting clients by being available any time…day or night.

    Forty years of a growing successful business…an enthusiastic clientele…principled and dedicated personnel…it seems Larry Johns was proven right.
