AirMap and DroneInsurance.com, a digital drone insurance portal, are announcing a collaboration that will allow U.S.-based drone operators to purchase insurance from DroneInsurance.com within the AirMap for Drones mobile app. The app is available today and can be downloaded from the App Store and Google Play.
The integrated ability to purchase insurance is made possible through REIN’s recently launched digital portal DroneInsurance.com, which aims to provide a smart and paperless drone insurance experience that offers dynamic policy options to address the unique risks, pain points and insurance needs of commercial drone operators. By providing the option to add insurance coverage as an easy, seamless part of AirMap’s pre-flight planning workflow through the AirMap for Drones iOS and Android mobile app, AirMap is improving the daily flying experience for drone operators.
“This joint effort between AirMap and DroneInsurance.com is about empowering commercial drone operators,” said REIN’s COO & Co-Founder Jason Griswold. “AirMap is brilliant at helping drone operators scale their businesses and the addition of the DroneInsurance.com toolset inside the AirMap mobile apps will synergize operational, safety, and insurance tools to really help drone operators scale their operations. From commercial-grade liability limits for episodic flight coverage to sensors and physical damage coverage options, our product aims to solve the unmet needs in the commercial drone insurance industry.”
Predominantly for commercial drone pilots and businesses looking for drone-specific insurance coverage, AirMap’s in-app access to the coverages offered through DroneInsurance.com enables fast and easy access to much-needed insurance coverage.
As regulations evolve, and companies utilize drones to perform commercial tasks–from industrial inspection, to real estate photography, to remote sensing–AirMap is focused on establishing a future for drones that is safe, connected, and protected. Providing simple, in-app access to insurance solutions is another step towards achieving this goal.
“We bring an integrated discover, connect, fly experience to our app users. Extending this with easy-to-use on-demand insurance further enables and promotes safe and informed drone operation,” said Ben Marcus, AirMap co-founder and Chairman. “Paired with our leading airspace management platform, AirMap users will get a lot of value from streamlined and easy-to-understand drone insurance.”
