We’re excited to announce we’ve teamed up with Coverdrone to provide our students with free drone insurance for their flight tests – now including equipment cover up to £4,000!

Who are Coverdrone?

Coverdrone is a comprehensive aviation insurance product for the commercial and recreational drone industry, providing industry-leading insurance in the UK, EU, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Unlike most insurance policies which are annual, Coverdrone provides commercial and recreational pilots with flexible policy periods ranging from 1 day to 1 year, and everything in between.

Along with providing a dedicated advisor to all customers, Coverdrone offers a range of bespoke protection plans, including full cover whilst in-flight, aviation liability, data protection and invasion of privacy, plus many other additional features.

Now partnered with Coverdrone, this means new pilots won’t need to buy drone insurance for flight assessments during training. Those new to industry can simply claim their complimentary insurance on the Coverdrone website, which will quickly cover them for any imminent flight tests. This insurance not only covers them for public liability, but also protects their equipment.

Jack Bloomfield, iRed’s Marketing Manager said:

“At iRed, we have always prided ourselves in spearheading innovation and having advanced knowledge in technical areas. By working with Coverdrone, we are pleased to be able to extend our services with their own innovative insurance packages, so together we can be at the cutting edge of comprehensive drone ownership support.”

Drone insurance is highly recommended for all students attending the new GVC Course, where students must complete a mandatory flight assessment to gain their qualification.
