  1. Though my questions and thoughts could fit in several discussion forums, particularly the Real Estate one, I decided I'd throw this out here since it also has a direct bearing on regulations, restricted airspace, etc.. An ongoing issue I have in the area I am based in (and I’m sure most licensed sUAV operators have everywhere) is trying to compete for work with unlicensed drone operators doing commercial work as well as even licensed operators not getting the proper authorization to fly in restricted air spaces. Charlotte is particularly difficult with uptown being less than 5 miles from our airport and squarely within Class B airspace. I routinely see commercial drone videos that are clearly in this airspace being used by developers on their websites and advertisements. I would be very surprised if these drone operators have applied for and received FAA authorization because I know how difficult it is to get such FAA Authorization. In February of this year, I applied for authorization to fly in our Class B Airspace for a particular commercial development assignment I knew would be coming up this summer. I was happy to receive the authorization after 90 days. I was also pleased that they even broadened the very specific area I had originally requested to include all of the Class B airspace, not just the 1/2 mile radius I originally asked for! This authorization will last until September. This opened up the option to market my ability to legally fly in this restricted area to other developers/ realtors. There are a lot of developments happening near uptown at present. As part of my effort to market my work, I plan to educate these developers that just because someone shows they can fly a drone and supply them with aerial work, they should realize their own liability if they do not follow the normal due diligence and hire both a licensed drone operator AND an operator with the proper FAA authorization if their development or property lies within restricted airspace! I am hoping, to gather any recent articles or blog posts that speaks to such liability, both financial and legal, and wondering if those on this forum can share some with me? I did find this article from last year that helps and speaks about unlicensed operators flying commercially. But it doesn’t specifically deal with operators flying illegally in restricted airspace, whether licensed or not, and the liability to their clients. I expect it could be even larger fines to both. I also decided to ask about this specific issue in my own email to UAVhelp this morning and hope they will also respond on this subject. I will share any response I get on the forum when I hear back. Any other articles you personally know of would be great to hear about. Thanks!

  4. Many exciting developments are underway in regards to drones and drone insurance. At the forefront of these innovative offerings stands Skyvuze Technologies. UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) are not the only thing that our agency has launched recently. We are constantly working around the clock to provide the most efficient offerings in the entire drone industry. Among the list of programs we are piloting soon, include a contemporary online quoting platform for businesses in need of commercial UAV insurance. The new digital program will make insurance quoting easier than ever for organizations who wish to protect their company from airborne exposures. This is way more than just a profession for us. Our Fly Safe, Not Sorry™ motto originated when our Co-Founders (Alexander Sheard and Drew Hoffmann) parlayed their passion for drones into revolutionizing the UAV industry forever. Skyvuze Technologies is thrilled to take part in skyrocketing the industry to new heights! Puns aside, we assist businesses by saving them time, money and headaches by giving comprehensive quotes in a timely manner. Now that the drone industry has taken off (sorry, we promise that’s the last pun,) companies are utilizing our full-service solutions to ensure that their assets are insured. Commercial drone operations are using UAV technology ranging from hundreds to hundreds of thousands of dollars (XACTSENSE). One minor accident could warrant expensive repairs or even a total replacement. Moreover, since most business liability policies exclude aircrafts, an accident could open the door for years of court proceedings and millions of dollars in damages. Drones and other UAVs are constantly combating the elements when navigating the skies. There are many uses businesses have for drones: ● Photography & Videography - Capture those perfect HD moments from an aerial view that only a drone can. Record every memory at this year's upcoming company picnic by inviting your favorite drone operator. ● Deliveries - You’ve probably heard the rumors that Amazon utilizes drones for conveniently delivering packages to customers. One day the same could apply the next time you order from your favorite local pizza parlor. ● Wireless Networks - Once solar drones are more prominent, they can serve as mobile wireless access points across the world. These devices can reportedly stay airborne for up to five years! ● Security - The military already uses UAVs to gain intel around potentially dangerous areas. Soon, they will be a standard part of every company’s security system. Drones can effectively survey the premises while keeping employees out of harm's way in the event of an emergency. Those are just a few examples of how drones can help your business cut costs while improving everyday operations. Here are three reasons why Skyvuze Technologies is at the top of the UAV insurance game: 1.

We become our partner’s wingman. 2. Convenient Online Application - The form is quick and easy to complete. And, don’t forget, the new online quoting platform will be going live very soon!

From there, we will get you a proposal that you can sign with the touch of a finger on your tablet or phone, authorizing us to bind your coverage that moment! 3.
