Drone pilots rewarded for flying ‘safe’ in new insurance scheme

skywatch ai

Drone-based solutions specialist, Skywatch.AI, has announced the launch of an ‘industry-first’ drone safety and on-demand insurance app.

The app, which is now available on the App Store and Google Play for both business and recreational operators, relies on a variety of data sources, including drone sensors, weather mapping, 3D airspace mapping, crowd density and AI algorithms.

The new system marks a ‘new era’ in drone insurance and will reward pilots on their efforts to fly safe.

The SkyWatch.AI app supports purchasing insurance for all types of UAVs under 55 pounds.

Operators using DJI drones alongside Android devices, and very soon on iOS, can get real-time hazard warnings based off the drone’s telemetry, calculating a proprietary “safety score” for each flight, based on the operator’s behaviour.

“Drone operators need a solution that caters to their needs,” said Tomer Kashi, SkyWatch.AI’s CEO.

“Our platform doesn’t only offer insurance, or safety – but marks a new era in drone insurance, where safer pilots can be rewarded for their efforts to fly safe, and actually pay less on their insurance premiums.”
