  1. Hi pilots,I'm excited to update on the latest developments from SkyWatch.AI.For those of you who are not familiar, SkyWatch.AI is a mobile app offering on-demand insurance and safety features, allowing drone pilots to pay less for flying safely.Yesterday we officially launched SkyWatch Plus, a monthly drone insurance plan for commercial pilots. Our monthly plan is dynamic, flexible and incorporates existing insurance discounts into the price.We've been testing it with a group of selected pilots to make sure the process is simple, fast and transparent. Of course, our team is available to provide the best tailor-made solution for each pilot whether it's an on-demand hourly coverage or a long-term plan. I'd be happy to hear your feedback and answer any question you have!Ilan
  2. This week our friends at SkyWatch introduced "SkyWatch Plus" — a unique monthly insurance program for drone pilots. The monthly coverage program is ideal for "frequent flyers" who need coverage all month long as opposed to per-flight or hourly based coverage. Members of the monthly program are also eligible for discounts based on their safety rating and experience. This chart provides a comparison between SkyWatch's hourly and monthly drone insurance programs: Source: SkyWatch.AI If you'd like to learn more about SkyWatch Plus monthly insurance, you can find more information in this article. You can also hop into this forum for more information on the hourly insurance program, SkyWatch On Demand. Let us know your experience with drone insurance. Do you prefer to purchase monthly or hourly insurance for your flights?
  3. Taking on an enterprise contract is not just "a gig", it demands a professional approach to risk analysis through every stage of the mission. In the following article, I share insights from SkyWatch.AI 's data and my experience in risk analysis, aviation safety, and mission management. https://skyward.io/flying-for-enterprises-drone-insurance-risk-analysis-for-contractors/ Thanks to Skyward.io for hosting the article on their blog.
  4. Looking for drone insurance? Last week I wrote about a new on demand drone insurance company called SkyWatch.AI—using a unique combination of factors, they're allowing drone pilots to get inexpensive, on demand insurance for their drone operations. Three main factors allow SkyWatch.AI to offer inexpensive insurance to drone pilots: Algorithms based on A.I. analyze the potential risks for a given mission by weighing factors like weather conditions, proximity of roads, airports, and crowds. SkyWatch.AI's unique Safety Score, which rates a pilot's safety based on missions they've flown, assesses a pilot's safety and helps drive down potential costs (assuming their score is high!). And SkyWatch.AI's Insurance Experience rating—which is simply how much time a pilot has had insurance—also helps drive down the cost. The SkyWatch.AI app is compatible with DJI drones, helps pilots plan missions and identify hazards while in flight, and has an integration with DroneDeploy that lets you pull in flight logs for insurance discounts, and they provide up to $10M in liability coverage. If you'd like to try it out, you can download the app here. Let me know if you give it a try—we'd love to hear about your experience! Trying to decide if you need drone insurance?

  5. Starting a drone business? You may have already read up on marketing, website development, branding, and best practices for networking. This post covers the less glamorous but necessary aspects of running a legit operation. From insurance, to registration, and certification, these straightforward steps will ensure you stay compliant and out of trouble. Personally, I highly recommend Costello Insurance for liability coverage. Friendly, affordable, excellent customer care. https://blog.dronedeploy.com/the-nuts-and-bolts-of-starting-a-commercial-drone-business-605ded766a76
  6. Lots of local legislation to keep tabs on right now, and I suspect a lot more over the next several months. Here's an interesting one out of California: http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2016/01/14/drone-legislation-would-require-owners-to-buy-insurance-get-uav-license-plates/
