You Can Now Insure Your Drone Every Time It Takes To The Skies
The on-demand service covers both commercial and recreational flights
Currently available on iOS and Android, Verifly is a new service to purchase drone insurance for that ever-unpredictable flight. Following various crashes throughout the United States, including a power line in Southern California, stands in the US Open and even the White House lawn, founder and CEO of taxi service Hailo, Jay Bregman, and CIO of ecommerce group Quidsi, Eugene Hertz, decided to flex their leadership wits yet again in designing an intuitive interface to cover UAV pilots.
Available across various locations, the app prompts you to select your flight area to get a quote. Through the platform, users can instantly insure their drones and receive a proof of insurance. The system then encircles the user within a quarter-mile radius, and uses a blend of geospatial and weather databases to calculate the estimated risk.
