Drone Safety, Risk Management and Insurance White Paper Published by Global Aerospace

April 28, 2015

Parsippany, New Jersey – Managing safety and insuring against risk will be crucial to the ultimate success of the fast-growing unmanned aviation industry. This is one of the key observations in a new white paper, Unmanned Aviation Risk Management, Accident Prevention and Insurance published this week by Global Aerospace, a leading international aviation and aerospace insurance provider. The paper offers a comprehensive view of crucial risk management topics related to unmanned aviation including:

•    The integration of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) into the National Airspace System
•    How unmanned aviation safety must begin to mirror manned aviation
•    The role of training, safety culture and safety management systems (SMS) for UAS
•    The long-term impact of the FAA’s recent Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) for UAS
•    Where responsibility for risk is to be placed on manufacturers and operators
•    Insurance solutions that can address this fast-evolving industry

The white paper is being made available free of charge, and can be downloaded at:  http://www.global-aero.com/unmanned-aviation-risk-management-accident-prevention-and-insurance

Global Aerospace has provided insurance and expert guidance to UAS operators for several years, from small independent operators to large, military-grade UAS. As aviation regulators around the world actively work to establish guidelines for the safe integration of UAS into the national airspace, Global Aerospace is at the forefront of insuring this new industry, helping manufacturers and operators understand how to improve safety, minimize risk and insure against loss and liability.
