For Immediate Release
It is often said that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Whereas Isaac Newton wrote that law for use in the world of Physics, it has equal applications in other fields. Alocal California startup has announced that they have developed software that will allow drones to monitor social distancing and mask mandate compliance. Whereas many might view this as an additional tool in the fight against COVID-19, BWI Aviation owner Matt White warns that new drone technologies combined with an exponential increase in drone operations could cause a spike in drone industries losses which in turn, will increase drone insurance rates
In a detailed writing on the BWI blog, White warned that increased losses could drive up drone insurance rates. “There is a correlation between new aviation products and technologies and an influx in operations could increase aviation losses as bugs and other issues are worked out.”
“We’ve been in the insurance industry for over 40-years, and with the changing effects of COVID-19 and rapid drone technological advancements, this is a whole new world we are seeing emerging” said White.
