In the entertainment industry, drone use is quickly becoming one of the most popular means of film production. Filmmakers are devoting more budget toward sophisticated drones, meaning there is an increased risk of monetary loss if the drone is damaged or lost during production. With Drone Insurance, your company can avoid potential loss, and focus your time and energy towards film production.

An Aviation Liability Insurance policy from MFE Insurance protects you and/or your business from claims of bodily injury and property damage that may arise during the course of business.
