  • Overview
    The University’s general liability insurance covers employees and volunteers who negligently operate a UAS or other aircraft during the course and scope of their employment. It does not cover property damage to the UAS nor other types of aviation specific losses. For that reason, we recommend purchasing additional insurance.

    This insurance contract provides hull(physical damage) and single limit liability coverage on aircraft owned, leased, loaned, or in UF’s care, custody, or control. Insurance can be purchased through the State DMS or the Insurance Coordinator can assist in finding alternate coverage.

    Insurance can be requested for the drone hull (physical damage) and any corresponding equipment (LIDAR, iPad, spare batteries, etc. Typically there is a separate deductible for hull and liability coverage. The coverage territory is worldwide.
