Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Insurance
DRONE GUARD are a specialist provider of insurance to UAV operators in the UK. Over the last few years we have seen the increase in operators requiring UAV insurance if they are commercially operating with a PfCO.
We work with specialist aviation insurers to create UAV insurance policies to meet all the requirements of commercial operators.
What is a UAV and do I need insurance?
A UAV is an acronym for unmanned aerial vehicle. It is also widely known as a drone, SUA, RPAS, UAS, or UAVS and is an aircraft which does not have a human pilot on board and is controlled from the ground using a controller or ground station.
If you are operating your UAV on a commercial basis then it is a legal requirement to have UAV liability insurance in place when flying.
