Flock and its continued innovation are driven by the demands of its customer base, the company has confirmed.
In an exclusive interview with Commercial Drone Professional, Tommy Wilson, drone partnerships manager at Flock, said this approach has allowed the company to put its insurance offering at the forefront of the industry.
Wilson explained: “Our products are driven by the demands of our customers so it’s very important we stay abreast of developments in the sector. It’s doing this that has enabled us to offer insurance to organisations working on the frontiers of the industry, from using hydrogen powered drones to conducting BVLOS flights across multiple countries.”
“A few stories that inspired the team this year include Skyports acquiring vertiports across London, Zipline delivering blood to a remote hospitals in Rwanda and Boeing testing drones with jet engines for long distance flights.”
On what he predicts the year to hold for the industry, Wilson predicts the recent turn of the decade as a big one for the market.
“2020 is going to be a big year for drone innovation. You can expect to see more interesting use-cases for drones emerge and more applications appear in traditional industries.”
Concluding: “We’re already reviewing requests to insure everything from autonomous drone fleets to eVTOL taxis and can’t wait to hear from other organisations pushing the envelope in the UAV industry.”
