Looks interesting.  Our business has looking at using a drone for aerial photography of farms, and as this means flying over other people's businesses, insurance could be useful.  Probably just a Spark, as we need to travel to some remote areas so weight is important, although this is not only Thailand, so we'd need international cover.

Premiums for the third party issue should be very cheap, real risk is extremely low. No doubt there will be some trying to rort with inflated premiums.

Pro size drones for pro usage (that remains hard to define as amateur drones today deliver 4k quality footage).... need a strong coverage due to their weight perhaos.....

 

...but what for the sunday afternoon amateur with his DJI Mavic Pro ?....... coverage should be appropriate and the premium must be very very reasonable...if not the amateur hobbyists will plainly remain the the grey zone and never conclude a insurance.

perhaps the first of it's kind to be advertised outright for drones. i've been flying rc aircraft models for nearly 10 years and have always sought for 3rd party insurance in case my models fail. to no avail, until now, because insurance companies didn't understand the risks. i suppose now they do. this is a positive effect brought about by the  call for drone registration. let's just hope that the insurance premiums won't be too high and restrictive

Be aware if you request this insurance you will wait two weeks for them to issue a policy, which means you will encounter another delay in registering your drone, added to the CAAT estimate of 60 day processing time :

If we don't have your insurance paperwork, we can't process the approval for you........It will take approximately 60 days to get the result before I can process the approval.

Thank you for your payment, we received your payment already, please see attachment.
The original policy will take time about 2 weeks and we will keep inform you again when it arrived.

Seems they are being overly cautious - just had my policy through in 8 days which is normal for insurance policies

Drone insurance or car / home / accident insurance ?

 

Agent told me that they can provide car cover instantly but these "supplemental" policies have to be written from scratch, ergo the 2 week delay

Seems reasonable, paid 3,000 Baht for 1m Baht of cover
