More and more businesses are purchasing and using drones for a number of reasons. Drones have been used in the entertainment business for a number of years. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s), affectionately referred to as “Drones”, are revolutionizing the Aerial Photography and Film industry as we know it. Drone insurance is a vital component in protecting the “Owner/operator” of the aircraft, the production company that hires the pilot, and the public at large. Drones are a quickly evolving technology, and the implications and regulations for owning one may change in the near future. Current sales of drones are running about 200,000 for 2015.
