Starr Insurance expands drone insurance program

Starr Insurance Companies has expanded its drone insurance program – SkyWatch.AI – to allow drone operators to purchase insurance more conveniently.

The specialty insurance is now available through a SkyWatch.AI link on select aviation brokers’ websites, a release said.

SkyWatch.AI is a licensed insurance broker in all US states which operates a data analytics platform that offers best-in-class insurance solutions to drone pilots. The company is underwritten by Starr Insurance.

“SkyWatch’s solution is revolutionary in our industry, making it easier for drone operators to access quality insurance at a moment’s notice, commented Starr Aviation senior vice-president Jim Anderson.

Anderson added that thanks to the new link, qualifying commercial operators can now obtain coverage instantly, 24/7.

“After serving thousands of drone pilots with the SkyWatch.AI mobile app, we wish to open our solution to even more drone pilots, including ones that would like to continue working with their existing brokers,” said SkyWatch.AI CEO Tomre Kashi. “That’s why we’re excited about this new development in partnership with Starr and innovative brokers.”
