Insurance for Ultra lights or LSA aircraft

Ok, I've been wanting to get my pilots license for the last few years now. About two years ago, I took an orientation flight at the Sentimental Journey Fly-In in Lock Haven, PA. Flying the Evektor Sportstar Plus was a fantastic experience! I wanted to fly before, but am almost dying to ever since!

But the only thing holding me back since then, is the cost of insurance for an aircraft. I'd prefer to do LSA over an ultra light. I've already got an eye for the type of aircraft I'd like. The CGS Hawk Classic.

Ultimately the question is, about how much on average does it cost per month to insure an aircraft such as a Hawk?

I forget who I got my insurance through. It was one that a lot of the EAA guys use. I owned a 1938 Areonca KCA, 2004-2007. It was/is LSA legal, and I was getting my ticket, until family issues forced a major re-direction.

IIRC the monthly stroke was not too bad. I bought full coverage the first year but then found most owner/pilots forgo hull damage. As i was working in a restoration shop at the time, I did too, and cut my cost by approx 1/2.

So I take it you didn't spend almost 400 a month for insurance? The only thing holding me back from taking lessons is the cost of insurance.
