SkyWatch.AI is Live With Its Drone Insurance Platform

SkyWatch.AI, a usage-based safety and insurance platform for the drone industry, announced the launch of its drone safety and on demand insurance app for business and recreational operators.



The app supports purchasing insurance for all types of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), or drones, under 55 pounds. Coverage is underwritten by Starr.


In DJI drones, for Android devices and very soon on iOS, operators can also get real-time hazard warnings based off of the drone’s telemetry, calculating a proprietary “safety score” for each flight, based on the operator’s behavior. The “safety score” can be used to set an industry benchmark for operators, who will be more aware of how they fly, and will be able to improve their score as they practice better, safer flights. Additionally, operators will be able to purchase insurance based on this safety score.
