Fairly new here, but been using various UAVS (airship, aircraft, now Arducopter) for 4 years. I'm looking for a company to underwrite liability insurance for flying my ArduCopter in Canada. I have found several European insurers who may be able to provide coverage in Canada, but I might rather have a Canadian insurer. Does anyone have a list of insurers or any other resources I can follow for UAV liability insurance?
Thanks and looking forward to participating on DIYdrones.
You might want to check Loyds of London. They'll insure anything and have the best rates in many cases.
Remember that no insurance policy is going to cover the results of criminal or negligent behavior, so you'll have to make sure everything you do is 100% by the book.
Yes, I will check Lloyds. I have leads on a few insurers in Canada / US, the TC guy also said Shaw Sabey in Vancouver has provided UAV coverage. In some cases the liability insurance for your business will cover it, but you have to check with them for exclusions. I will post here what resources I come across.
I think many people might be interested in this. I'll be interested in the details you find out.
I contacted several insurance providers today. I'm waiting for more details, but it appears it will cost around 1-2k yearly for liability. It would most likely be less if we could get together a group of people who would subscribe to a club insurance covering multiple members. I believe this is something we should think about for our future at DIYDrones.
