The use of drones also known as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) or remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) such as the DJI Phantom or Mavic, and other quad-copter UAV’s have increased significantly over the last couple of years. Businesses are now using UAVs for commercial purposes including Crop Science, Mapping, Filming, Photography and Surveillance to name a few, and they are using this technology to advance their services.
Aside from liability protection, Transport Canada requires that companies have proper insurance coverage for these devices. Familiarize yourself and your employees with the rules and regulations surrounding drone usage. Insurance won’t cover fines and court costs that come along with any provincial, federal or municipal law infractions, so be prepared and operate your UAV safely and diligently.
