DroneUp is pleased to announce it is collaborating with SkyWatch.AI to provide on-demand, automated flight insurance coverage to Part 107 pilots when they execute commercial missions delivered in the DroneUp app. The liability coverage will be carried by DroneUp at no additional charge to its participating drone pilots. After notifying, verifying and accepting a job in the DroneUp app, pilots are two-clicks away from insurance coverage. Coverage includes property damage, bodily injury and privacy claims.

Securing essential flight insurance provides even further risk mitigation for drone operations,” said Anthony Vittone, Chief Operating Officer for DroneUp.
