  1. I am looking for insurance coverage in New York State. Can anyone provide a lead o point me in the right direction? TIA!
  2. I'm just getting my business up and running (Grandview Drone Photography) and was concerned that I would have to buy hour by hour insurance until I had logged 50 to 100 hours flying time to get an annual policy. Just for the heck of it I sent a quote request to BWI --and was pleasantly surprised to get an offer, even though I only have about 36 hours of flying time. It's for an annual policy with $1,000,000 liability as well as coverage for the value of my drone. At any rate, I just thought I'd pass that info along.
  3. Hey, I’m a Canadian trying to find a way to be insured to fly a drone in the US. I reached out to Skywatch and even though they insure Canada and US, they say: While we are available in the US and Canada, our insurance is regulated by country of residence. If you have an address of residency in the US, you will be able to purchase a plan through our US service. However, our Canadian policies will not extend coverage for operations flown outside of Canada territory. is there a war around this? thanks!
  4. Hi everyone, I recently got a DJI Mavic Air which I'm planning to bring with me when I travel. Can I get some advice on how drone insurance works, whether or not insurance policies have international coverage, and how much can I expect to be paying annually as a hobbyist? I'm not using the drone for commercial purposes, purely just to take nice photos and videos during my travels. Do I even need drone insurance? Will I get arrested/fined by foreign countries if I don't have drone insurance?? Also, if anyone has any recommendations for a good insurance company, please feel free to share the inf

  7. Looking for drone insurance? Last week I wrote about a new on demand drone insurance company called SkyWatch.AI—using a unique combination of factors, they're allowing drone pilots to get inexpensive, on demand insurance for their drone operations. Three main factors allow SkyWatch.AI to offer inexpensive insurance to drone pilots: Algorithms based on A.I. analyze the potential risks for a given mission by weighing factors like weather conditions, proximity of roads, airports, and crowds. SkyWatch.AI's unique Safety Score, which rates a pilot's safety based on missions t
  8. OK, so I have my Part 107 certificate and I have the Drone Pilot Ground School certificate, I must be finished with UAV Coach, right? Not so fast. I just finished the last of the BONUS interviews that are provided as part of the Drone Pilot Ground School. The information there is really incredible! There is a goldmine of knowledge and information in those interviews. So, for anyone who is taking this course or has completed the course and obtained their Part 107 certification, I think it is very important that you finish the course and listen to each one of the interviews. I've liste

  13. Alan Perlman asks new members to introduce themselves, and here I am. I am a Graduate of the University of Dubuque's Aviation program and Aviation Advisory Board Member for them.

  15. Are you thinking about becoming a commercial UAV pilot under FAA part 107? If so, UAV insurance should be a main concern of your new business. A vast majority of "standard" liability insurance policies exclude anything that has to do with aircraft. Since UAVs are under the purview of the FAA, they are considered to be aircraft by most insurers. So how do you get your new UAV operation insured? Easy, contact an aviation specific insurance broker (I happen to be one). If this sounds intimating, you are not alone. However, once you understand the basics of insuring an aircraft, you will be an avi
  16. Hi everybody. Alan Perlman (UAV Coach) recently sent an email that startedt: As more people are picking up drones, flying them, and starting businesses, the question inevitably arises: Do I need drone insurance? He went on to say "the short and sweet of it is, it’s a smart move if you’re conducting business. (So if you’re a recreational pilot, you probably don’t need it.) This alarmed me. Everyone should be insured. As a long-standing model aircraft enthusiast myself (for radio-controlled aircraft) we absolutely need insurance to cover any damages or death caused by our (unmanned) a
