Minimum Requirements for Drone Use

Evidence of coverage for the use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) provided by the UASoperators. Each UAS operating entity must submit proof of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) insurance for owned and/or non‐owned aircraft with a limit of at least $2,000,000 per occurrence which names the State of Hawaii as an additional insured.

This can be submitted in one of two ways:

  1. If UAS coverage is being added to a general liability policy, there must be a separate endorsement showing proof of UAS coverage or the UAS coverage needs to be evidenced on the certificate.
  2. If the coverage is coming from an aviation‐specific insurance carrier (such as Global Aerospace), a separate policy endorsement is not necessary, as the entire policy represents the UAS coverage

If a separate endorsement is needed, it must name the State of Hawaii as Additional Insured on the policy using our required wording.

Required Wording

“The State of Hawaii, including all of its departments and attached agencies, their officers,employees and agents are named as additional insured with respect to the named insured’s filming activities.”

*If a separate endorsement is not needed, then our required wording may be shown-
