UAS Insurance

For operators of UAS conducting Aerial Work, it is essential that they have the right insurance in place before they commence operations.

UAVS, while not being an insurance broker, agency or underwriter, monitors the UAS Insurance market on behalf of its members.  It cannot recommend who members or non-members approach to gain the necessary insurance.

A number of insurance brokers and providers have become members of UAVS and they may be contacted directly as follows:
