    My company, Verifly, released an on-demand drone insurance app today in partnership with Global Aerospace. $1M policies start at $10 an hour - all delivered instantly via the app. Happy to answer any questions but this will cover a Typhoon (and any drone under 15lbs) in most of the US. Article in TechCrunch: Verifly launches drone insurance by the flight, and on-demand in the US. Thank you!

    Can you provide a link? I'd like to see details in regard to exclusions, range of coverage, etc.

    Verifly is now up and running in Oregon and Oklahoma! That puts us live in 44 out of 50 states. We'd love to hear any initial stories from pilots in either of these states.

    Hey y'all...We've started posting a drone video of the day on Verifly's Facebook and Twitter. Amazing landscapes, fireworks, racing and since we are an insurance company, the occasional epic crash.

    We are #VeriflyMe for both.

    We are working on New York. We require approval from each state's insurance commission and New York's is taking longer. It may be till the end of the year. Since we are based in NY, we are very motivated to get this out in New York.

    Hey all

    We've started sharing some details on some of our upcoming features, so I wanted to post the list here hot off the presses:

    Higher liability limits: For some jobs or flights, $1,000,000 isn’t enough coverage, so we will be rolling out a $2,500,000 option.

    Longer time periods: For many flights, an hour is the perfect amount of time but many of you do full or half-day shoots and want the convenience of buying one insurance policy. So we will soon be offering 4-hour and 8-hour Verifly policies.

    Larger areas: We will be offering a new option to purchase coverage over a half-mile radius.

    COA Authorization: Whether you have a Part 107, a 333 exemption or permission from a local property owner, we are adding a certification system to the app so that you can get coverage in places where you have authorization to fly.

    Certificate of Insurance Membership: Commercial clients often want to see proof of insurance in advance of a job, so we will be offering a certificate that you can share with your clients in advance of buying a Verifly policy on the job-site.

    How will these features work for you?

    It's all good. Also, FAA waviers should be included (like the wavier to fly nearby to airports).

    But without geographic coverage (NY again) have no sens :) do you have any timeframes there?

    Hi Krakozavr

    We are just waiting on approval from the New York state insurance commission. Unfortunately, we don't have a timeline other than to say that we will push New York live as soon as we get the approval. Sorry for the delay.
