I have mentioned before how the rise of the drones could impact the rules relating to KAP on national heritage sites. Now it is the turn for insurance.
My household insurance, under personal household liability, covered me for flying a kite with a camera for non-professional use. I had to have this confirmed in writing, some years back, as being included under 'hobbies'.
I am now told that this is no longer the case, as flying a drone is now specifically excluded. The all encompasing definition of a drone also defines a kite, no exceptions ;o(
My remaining cover is under our archaeological trust's policy.
There is also this route for KAP cover in the UK:http://www.bkfa.org.uk/files/Perkins%20Slade%20kiteflying%20outline.pdf
............Oddly, I have just spoken with the person that handles this policy and he told me that they do not cover the BKFA for aerial photography!?
