JUIDA Group Insurance

What is the JUIDA Group Insurance?

In December 2015, an amendment to the Aviation Act has come into effect. With it, drones (Unmanned Aerial Systems), which have not been specified by law up to that point, have received new flight rules. (Those rules apply to aircraft whose mass exceeds 200g). Together with the amendment, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport announced the “Guidelines for the Safe Flight of Unmanned Aerial Systems.” Those guidelines mention “maintenance of skills” and “enrollment into a liability insurance in preparation for the eventual accident compensation to third parties”.

 

Based on those initiatives of the state, JUIDA has established the Japanese first license system for drone operators and flight administrators as a way of supporting the “maintenance of skills.” Additionally, JUIDA has also prepared a group insurance for its members as the system for the “enrollment into a liability insurance in preparation for the eventual accident compensation to third parties”
