I assume your going to do the Tac training as well. These are cub pilots teaching you specifically how to fly these planes and I think insurance companies recognize that specific training.
Yep, I recognize that I'm a similar risk level as my wife, despite having a lot more hours, etc. Heck, I've been flying an aircraft with a yaw damper, NO rudder flying, and mostly autopilot in the flight levels - totally different skills. And yes, I'll do the same TacAero XCub transition course before I get to fly it. Wife gets to do it first though, as it's HER plane, and she wouldn't let me get training and fly it before she did! I'll be flying home with her this weekend, as a passenger.
