Unmanned Aircraft Vehicles (UAV) commonly referred to as “drones” are becoming increasingly popular for both commercial and personal use. Accidents don’t just happen to reckless pilots. Accidents can result from battery drains, mechanical failure, strong gusts of wind and other environmental risks. If you’re using a drone for commercial or research purposes you are likely required, by Transport Canada, to carry liability insurance on it. Because of the aerial nature of UAVs, chances are that they are not covered by your current insurance and must have protection from a special aviation policy.
