  2. Comprehensive Products Liability Insurance.  If your drone or model aircraft, or any part of your system (e.g. your battery or controller) malfunctions in some way and someone is injured, or someone’s property is damaged, this cover indemnifies you.
  3. International Cover. FPV UK membership includes cover in the UK, Channel Islands, Isle of Man, all of the 27 countries of the European Union (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Republic of Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden), Norway & Switzerland. (Non-UK residents are covered in the UK, Channel Islands & Isle of Man).
  4. CAA Article 16 Operational Authorisation. Our operational authorisation allows you to fly with fewer restrictions and greater flexibility.
  5. Exceptional Support. If you have questions about regulations, your CAA Operator ID and Flyer ID, risk assessments, or anything else, our dedicated support email is always available. We answer emails in a matter of minutes.
  6. Commercial Cover. You can fly commercially (up to £15k turnover) with our 785/2004 compliant public liability insurance.
  7. Influential Lobbying Efforts. We ensure your drone interests are represented through our continuous advocacy and lobbying with key entities. These include the CAA, DfT, House of Lords, Ofcom, and National Police Chiefs Council.
