Flock pairs with BIBA for new commercial drone insurance scheme


Drone insurance specialist Flock has announced a new partnership with the British Insurance Brokers Association (BIBA), through which the pair will offer a member drone scheme.

Together the duo plan to offer easy-to-access and flexible cover for commercial drones such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft.

The new scheme is underwritten by leading aviation underwriters who bring high-quality capacity and provide worldwide cover, allowing BIBA members to easily access cover for small businesses, global operators and large fleets.

Flock has issued over one million quotes and now insures some of the world’s largest fleets including Skyports, Terra Drone and Sky Futures.

Cover includes hull, equipment, cargo and public liability. It also includes beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) cover. Flock also has the ability to create custom insurance policies for specific use cases including drone deliveries, drone swarm shows and offshore operations.

Mike Hallam, BIBA’s head of technical services, said: “We are delighted to offer this new scheme to members. Flock has proven expertise in this area that will greatly benefit members who need access to this specialist class of insurance, whether that be on a regular or one-off basis.

“Flock will simplify the process for members to bind risks and offer comprehensive and competitive cover.”

Ed Leon Klinger, CEO of Flock, said: “The commercial drone industry is growing at a remarkable rate, and it’s critical that drone operators of all sizes have access to fair, flexible, and transparent insurance policies.

“We are excited to bring Flock’s market-leading products to thousands of brokers across the country through the new BIBA drone scheme. Working with Flock, brokers can now take advantage of automated binding, end to end claims support and insights from a UAV specialist.”
