Drones are fast becoming a major asset for UK farms. But did you know you’re breaking the law if you fly a drone commercially without the relevant training, permission and insurance?
Even if you only use a drone on your own land, you need to follow Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) guidance.
The good news is, if you’re looking to put this new technology to work on your own farm or as a service to others, we’re here to help.
In partnership with Gallagher’s specialist aviation team, we can offer a tailored drone insurance solution. This cover is available to our existing customers.
The cover options:
- Combined Cover – to provide cover for damage to the drone whilst in flight (plus, when selected, any spares and the ground control station), on the ground or in transit, including damage due to malicious acts and theft. This also covers your legal liability for injury to third parties or damage to their property resulting from ownership of the drone.
- Liability only cover – to cover your legal liability for injury to third parties or damage to their property resulting from ownership of the drone. Damage to the drone is not included and is available if required.
- Optional covers – these are available, including invasion of privacy, noise liability, operator’s indemnity, operator’s liability and cyber extension (loss of digital assets).
