About Unmanned Elite

The team at Unmanned Elite started out as traditional insurance events and brokers.  in late 2003 our founder, Jeff Kleid launched a traditional insurance program for the entertainment industry. Early on Jeff realized that Aviation insurance would play an essential role in the unique landscape of the Sports and Entertainment world he was insuring.  Realizing how important the right insurance products and services were, Jeff found and ultimately partnered with the team at Transport Risk insurance.  By 2005, Jeff and Transport Risk were the insurance team to the film and TV community.  

At that time Remote control aircraft was starting to prove to be a cost efficient way to get great film and tv production shots.  Jeff and the founder of Transport Risk Terry Miller set out to create the first Remote Control Aviation insurance products designed to meet the unique needs of the entertainment industry.  Fast forward to present day, the same premise of that amazing game changing needed aviation insurance product, has morphed into the drone insurance product.

Understanding the Aviation industry is key to knowing what you are covered for, how you are protected and now with amazing technology, how you rate as a pilot based on each flight.

We couldn’t be more happy than to be doing the same thing we set out to accomplish nearly 15 years later by providing great pilots and business owners with the insurance protection you need to take your business to the next level.  We welcome you to the UnmannedElite.com experience.
