- with a passion for model sports!
The history of the DMO starts in 1983 with Hans-Otto Köddermann in Wuppertal. Due to his passion for model flying, he saw the demand for a special model sports insurance and founded one - with big success! His vision turned into reality and now the DMO mediates liability insurances to model owners, no matter if they are members of an associations or a club or pursuing their hobby on their own - all model aircraft, vehicle or helicopter owners are welcome! We take care of every single one of them - and we do it with passion!
Since 2005, when a model owner liability insurance became obligatory, the DMO has grown and not it is firmly established in the region known as “Bergisches Land”. Apart from that, they were the first to offer commercial model owner liability insurances in Germany, because Hans-Otto Köddermann saw a big chance in that area. And he was right, as we can see today. The commercial usage of aircraft models and drones has grown considerably and will continue to do so.
Meanwhile, tens of thousands members all over Germany are convinced of the good service of the DMO. Our main priorities are: a good consultation, competence and friendliness. Our aim is to inform our customers about any news and information they might need. The DMO is a family-run business.
