If you don't have a non-owned aircraft insurance policy that covers Anderson Aviation's minimum for hull damage for the type of aircraft you want to rent, and you're looking for a short term insurance policy...you might want to consider looking into Starr Gate for your aircraft insurance needs.
Do the aircraft rates include everything, or are taxes separate? - Separate. Tax rate is 8.25% when renting. Taxes don't apply when flight instruction is involved.
There is also a $10/hour fuel surcharge added on top of the single engine aircraft's hourly wet rate.

What does the typical checkout involve? - Your typical checkout will include discussing and answering questions with a CFI, preflight, aircraft maneuvers including power on/off stalls and recovery, and emergency procedures to demonstrate your ability to safely fly the aircraft. Typically done in about 1-2 hours.
Is there a written part of the aircraft checkout questionnaire? - No. All questions will be discussed with the instructor.
Will a checkout in an Archer satisfy the checkout in a 180/160/140? - Yes. A checkout in a 140 however will not satisfy a checkout in a 160, and a 160 in a 180, and so on.
