Joel Heining’s 30-year career in aviation insurance is rooted in his background as a pilot, which includes military and general aviation experience.

Heining’s military experience involved high-risk flight operations worldwide, emphasizing high-impact training, safety and risk management — and adding to his unique understanding of the aviation insurance space.

“Joel’s ability to identify and educate new or potential insurers keeps our program running smoothly,” said Kent Kleppe, director, treasury services at North Memorial Air Care.

Heining’s unwavering philosophy of serving others has remained constant throughout his long career. Thanks to this mentality, Heining has formed strong relationships with clients centered on trust and appreciation.

“His availability — he picks up the phone when I call — and willingness to meet me wherever he is needed — like an outstate air ambulance base — is outstanding,” Kleppe said.

In addition, Heining keeps the insurer community up to date on all changes happening in each of his client-specific businesses. This speaks volumes to his clients.

“Joel strives to have more potential partners at renewal time than required. It eliminates surprises and introduces a lightly competitive process into our renewal,” Kleppe said.

“Joel is a hardworking partner looking for solutions that work for us, not him. His confident yet humble demeanor is the right mix to go along with his extreme depth of knowledge about our aircraft and air ambulance program.”
