Many Australians are realising that owning a UAV is either a fun hobby, a lucrative business or a combination of both. However, like any aerial activity, flying a UAV can involve numerous risks. Crash landings, inclement weather, theft, and physical obstacles within the built and natural environment are just some of the factors that can cause damage or loss when it comes to unmanned aircraft. Risking your investment in your UAV, accessories and related equipment is just not worth it.
UAV insurance is now available in Australia through aviation insurers. Selected insurers in Australia now offer UAV insurance coverage solutions, for commercial applications, specifically suitable to business owners of unmanned, remotely-operated aircraft. Specifically, most aviation insurers offer insurance of unmanned aircraft/drones for commercial use.
