"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."
Predominantly for commercial drone pilots and businesses looking for drone-specific insurance coverage, AirMap's in-app access to the coverages offered through DroneInsurance.com enables fast and easy access to much-needed insurance coverage.
