SkyWatch.AI Drone Insurance has partnered with AUVSI to offer qualifying pilots cheaper insurance rates.
Through the partnership, drone pilots who complete AUVSI’s Trusted Operator Program (TOP) level 2 and 3, will be eligible for lower insurance rates with SkyWatch.AI based on their flight experience and professional education.
Tomer Kashi, SkyWatch.AI CEO and co-founder, said: “We are proud to team up with AUVSI and support TOP pilots. In the past year, we worked closely with thousands of drone pilots from multiple industries throughout the US. It is clear to us that extensive education, such as that provided by TOP, is crucial in the development of a safer pilot community.
“Offering advanced and affordable drone insurance solutions to pilots with higher education and experience is our way of showing that we value their efforts.”
Brian Wynne, CEO and president of AUVSI, added: “The TOP reflects levels of safety and competency protocols that are appropriate for everything from wedding photography to oil flare stack inspections. By providing UAS operators and the businesses they support, with a standard way to demonstrate proficiency, TOP will help ensure the safe and sustainable advancement of the unmanned systems industry.”
