Who needs UAV & drone insurance?

Drone on table

Anyone who owns and/or operates a drone will want to have UAV & drone insurance. Whether your drone is a high-end professional model or one designed for pleasure, it’s a good idea to fully cover it. If you’re uninsured or underinsured, you would be liable for the costs not just of replacing the drone in the event of an accident but also the medical bills of anyone injured and the costs to repair or replace damaged property. Even with drones used solely for private purposes, these liabilities still exist and UAV & drone insurance can ensure that you’re not at financial risk should something happen.

Is UAV & drone insurance required by law?

As of 2023, there isn’t a federal law requiring UAV & drone insurance, but states may have their own regulations that you’ll need to follow. Some states require a minimum amount of insurance to operate a drone. Some cities may also have their own requirements. Being fully insured will mean that you can safely operate your drone while meeting the insurance requirements of anywhere in the US, so you won’t have to worry about coverage if you’re using the drone in multiple locations.

How much does UAV & drone insurance cost?

How much drone insurance costs depends on what and how much insurance you need. You’ll want to make sure that the hull insurance is enough to fully replace the drone in the event it’s damaged beyond repair. Your liability insurance should be enough to cover the costs of property damage or injuries that your drone could cause in the event of an accident. For example, an annual drone policy that includes hull insurance and liability insurance could be $500 per year.

Discuss your drone insurance needs with a professional from Avion Insurance to determine how much insurance you need. We’ll try to minimize your insurance premiums without sacrificing coverage.
