Pay Per Day CoverThe new pay per day insurance from Coverdrone is made for commercial and hobbyist drone operators who don’t need long-term policies such as annual cover. With the pay per day, drone operators can insure their aircraft from one to seven days with a minimum period of 24 hours. Options are available liability cover and equipment cover, dependent on the customer’s need. Liability cover of one million is available for hobbyist users or for commercial users, one or two million. Multiple aircraft can be covered under one policy including all DJI drones as well as numerous pilots. Choose for your cover to start in just 10 minutes of applying for last-minute flights or select a day within the next 30 days. This means you can choose for your cover to start for a planned flight, without having to worry about it on the day as you know you’re already covered. If your policy runs out and you still need cover, simply add extra days through the app. Policies are purchased through the iOS and Android app. Whilst your policy is access, you will receive full access to Coverdrone’s FlySafe app features. This includes safety and planning tools for your drone flight. Full features can be seen below in the ‘FlySafe App’ section.

Flight Test and Training InsuranceDesigned for cover during commercial drone operator training, this policy covers a 30-day period. Policies are available following the completion of a Ground School with a CAA approved NQE. This allows you to practice the manoeuvres required for your Flight Assessment and undertake your assessment with your NQE. The policy will cover liability and equipment, with varying levels available. The policy excess is also flexible to suit your needs. You can also cover multiple aircraft as required so you can test out different aircraft and choose which to take your Flight Assessment with. A huge benefit of the training cover is your policy premium will be refunded in full if you’re to take out an annual policy within 60 days of completing your assessment. This will not be available if a claim is made during the training period. [caption id="attachment_11020" align="aligncenter" width="600"] DJI Inspire 2[/caption]
Annual InsuranceAnnual drone policies are available for commercial drone operators with full permissions from the CAA. Like the other two policies, Coverdrone’s annual policy is made to be flexible in order to meet the needs of all commercial operators. Choose the desired rate of public liability to suit your operations with a minimum level of one million. Separate aviation liability is also available to cover events including war and acts of terrorism. Cover is available for flight, storage and when in transit in the majority of countries. Aircraft can be added to your cover at any time to ensure you can instantly cover yourself with new equipment. You can also fly drones you don’t own and add them to your policy as hired equipment. Cover is available for any location as long as the appropriate regulations are adhered to, and you can receive a hired drone if you do encounter any problems.
