Canada Drone Insurance Rates With Group Buying Power For Recreational Flying?

I have been trying to research insurance rates for drones in Canada lately ever since the interim laws were put in place. While they seem very expensive for recreational flyers it was proposed to me that people could potentially form together to create a club of sorts to get better discounted rates. So I ask the question how many people would be interested in this and what is a good price?

    I am from the USA. and I am curious. This is a question I will be asking informed Canadians for a while. Has an incident ever occurred in Canada involving a "Drone" to warrant the need for $100K insurance? What was the precedent? Was someone injured? This would be something like a building catching on fire or worst. Personal injury cost can be $20K – $30K per person. I don’t know many cars that could suffer more than $15K in damages. I can’t understand how a toy weighing less than 1kg would be able to cause up to $10K let alone $100K in damages. Someone from the insurance companies offering these policies need to explain this before the insurance is even sold. I’ll reserve judgment because I’m willing to be taught something new and get the facts.

    Does insurance make it easier to fly in Canada? Or is it just in case you fly into someone’s window

    we shouldnt have to have fucking insurance to fly a 250g drone, srsly that isnt going to hit something and not shatter itself.

    With more and more bicycles on the city streets because of the ever increasing price of gasoline, what would be the cost of bicycle insurance be? I believe back around the 1940s, bicycles required plates as cars etc. do. That was in Toronto ON. What’s next, one requires insurance to step out one’s door…..? Keep up the good vlogs Alan.

    Hi Alan.  I belong to an organization in Peterborough, Ontario called the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters.  With my annual membership fee of less than $50. per year I have $5,000,000.00 (that’s right, FIVE MILLION DOLLARS of liability insurance, and this is for using GUNS recreationally).  If a member were to make a mistake and damage someone’s property, then they would have that FIVE MILLION DOLLARS of liability insurance coverage.  If we Quad Copter owners could get together and form an organization with thousands of members at say $40. to $50. membership fee, there’s no reason in the world that we shouldn’t be able to acquire the same liability coverage that I have through the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters.  All we need to do is get it going and one gentleman has already started an organization.  There is no obligation money-wise at this moment, but you can sign up online (no cost at this time as he’s just trying to feel it out).  The URL for this new organization is: http://www.uuag.ca/  I hope people will have a look and just maybe we can be on our way to obtaining and belonging to a group with phenomenal liability insurance.

    I think $60 to $100 would be fair. As far as doing it as a group. There is always strength in numbers!

    I’d get in on this with you. I currently have $1-million in liability through MAAC but only when I’m flying at my club field, or on private property with the written consent of the land owner.

    I wonder if NODE would get into something like this if insurance becomes a mandate thing for drone users – you would think manufacturers would somehow like to get involved just to make sure they can keep the drone market healthy and easy for current and new consumers.

  15. DJ HEX on May 10, 2021 at 3:18 am

    Hello again! Before you decide to purchase drone insurance, there is one big thing you should know. As far as I know, all drone insurance companies provide coverage as long as you are operating the drone under the current laws and regulations. If not, the insurance is not valid. They may not tell you that, but it is in writing.
    Cheers
