PERFORMANCE VECTOR UNMANNED
Printer friendly version
Sharing the Skies with Unmanned Aircraft Systems
No aviation sector has grown more than the use of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS). In the United States, registered UAS now outnumber registered manned aircraft. Performance Vector Unmanned helps foster safe use by providing UAS operators with the tools to be fully compliant with all regulations. The program helps create a competent and responsible operator base for commercial UAS.
Available to UAS-Only Policyholders
Since UAS-only policies are not eligible for Performance Vector, we created a separate program specifically for these policyholders. We call it Performance Vector Unmanned. This evolving set of resources and services boosts the safety and compliance of USAIG-insured UAS operators. It refreshes with each policy renewal. Please check back, as PV Unmanned options will grow and advance in step with the needs of the dynamic UAS industry.
Performance Vector Unmanned Program Options
Policyholder options are summarized in the table below and described in greater detail in the paragraphs that follow.
Our entry level of Performance Vector Unmanned safety support (FlyRight Package or Online sUAS Ground School) offers a valuable boost to any UAS operation’s capabilities and safety posture. Our more advanced SafetyPartner and SafeFlight options help operations of increasing complexity and volume of UAS flight activity integrate best practices into planning and managing their UAS missions. It’s important to note that every UAS policy is eligible for some level of Performance Vector Unmanned services. To activate this benefit, contact your insurance broker, who can assist with confirming your eligibility and submitting your Performance Vector Unmanned enrollment. The various components of Performance Vector Unmanned services are described in greater detail below.
Provides enrollment for one trainee in an online course that sets a sturdy foundation of required knowledge for remote pilots of UAS less than 55 pounds. The course addresses all pertinent aeronautical knowledge factors outlined by the FAA for the Unmanned Aircraft General (UAG) examination and augments those with safety concepts and practices to develop well-informed and responsible remote pilots. Students who successfully complete the course are well prepared to pass the UAG exam. Access is provided for three (3) months from the date of initial enrollment. Online quizzes are integrated at appropriate points to confirm retention of key concepts. Successful course completion (signified by earning at least 80% on an end-of-course exam) enables the trainee to print a course completion certificate. The course has eight units:
The FlyRight Package supports safely standardizing and expanding sUAS operations.

Additional training credit for Unmanned Safety Institute (USI) online UAS operator training courses is provided to support continuing education for existing remote pilots, or to help meet new remote pilot training needs as the operation expands. The package includes:
