REIN’s DroneInsurance.com and AirMap Announce Collaboration Enabling Remote Pilots to Easily Purchase Drone Insurance

Bill Sinn | September 10, 2018

REIN’s DroneInsurance.com, a digital drone insurance portal, is announcing its collaboration with AirMap, a leading drone airspace management platform. The relationship allows drone operators to seamlessly access DroneInsurance.com’s offerings within AirMap for Drones, AirMap’s iOS and Android applications, providing a streamlined option to add insurance coverage as part of AirMap’s pre-flight planning workflow.

“This joint effort between AirMap and DroneInsurance.com is about empowering commercial drone operators,” said REIN’s COO & Co-Founder Jason Griswold. “AirMap is brilliant at helping drone operators scale their businesses, and the addition of the DroneInsurance.com toolset inside the AirMap mobile apps will synergize operational, safety, and insurance tools to really help drone operators scale their operations. From commercial-grade liability limits for episodic flight coverage to sensors and physical damage coverage options, our product aims to solve the unmet needs in the commercial drone insurance industry.”

Underwritten through Liberty Specialty Markets, DroneInsurance.com is an automated platform offering dynamic policy solutions to address the unique risks, pain points, and insurance needs of commercial drone operators. For a monthly amount per drone, businesses can protect their ground operations. Then, operators can purchase flight liability coverage on-demand, for as little as a day, or as long as a year, with a range of limits.

“We are excited to support the program and tools reinventing the traditional drone insurance business model,” Brendan Smyth, Senior Vice President, Global Risk Solutions at Liberty Mutual. “Understanding emerging technologies and seamlessly delivering innovative and comprehensive risk solutions to our customers is at the core of Liberty Mutual’s mission.”

The AirMap for Drones mobile app is a comprehensive situational awareness tool that provides drone pilots with the rules, tools, and services they need to complete safe and successful drone missions, including compliance briefings, automated digital authorization, traffic alerts, and now, DroneInsurance.com’s streamlined insurance offering.

“Paired with our leading airspace management platform, AirMap users will get a lot of value from streamlined and easy-to-understand drone insurance,” said Ben Marcus, AirMap co-founder and Chairman.

The app is available today and can be downloaded from the App Store and Google Play.

1 DroneInsurance.com is now available throughout the United States except in NY, NJ, KY, IL, WV and MN. Insurance services are provided by Acend Insurance Solutions, LLC (“AIS”), a licensed surplus lines producer in all 50 U.S. States.  AIS operates in California under license No. 0L70741. Additional licensing information is available at DroneInsurance.com.
