Why insurance for the Agras ?
We all know that accidents do happen, even with all the “bells and whistles” this machine offers. There will always be a great risk involved when flying over crops. With the drone’s maximum take-off weight of 76kg when at full capacity, should a battery malfunction or the craft clip a rogue tree branch, the force of the drone might cause a catastrophic accident. Our largest concern when it comes to crop spraying, is the liability risk involved and crop loss due to fire. With the Drones Lithium Battery, this is factored into our calculations.
As a commercial operation in South Africa, you will be required to take out a minimum of Third-party liability insurance to cover losses caused by the drone. Our registered pilots and drone operational companies have such policies in place already and we are able to offer that peace of mind to any clients they work with.
With the drone’s market valuation retailing at approximately R350,000, some companies would prefer to take out asset finance on the Agras T30, and in that case, will require drone Insurance to assist them with cover should the drone be damaged or stolen.
With that being said, we feel extremely confident in the training received and the safety checks carried out by our registered pilots. This allows us to offer competitive cover to clients that not only aids them in saving on their premium, but also provides the pilot with the trust that they are correctly insured for all scenarios.
