From International Drone Racing Association (IDRA):
The International Drone Racing Association (IDRA) has announced that the organization will partner with DroneALERT (AGICS) to jointly work together to globally promote responsible drone operations, drone safety and education and women in the drone industry.
To achieve the mutual goal of a safer and more responsible industry, IDRA will support the DroneALERT system as an avenue for reporting dangerous or illegal drone activities and for viewing global no-fly zones, safe-fly zones, and global drone laws. DroneALERT will offer IDRA’s insurance service on their website and launch a ‘drone racing events’ global map to promote the sport. Together, IDRA and DroneALERT will highlight safe areas for drone operators to fly, in addition to drone racing events, which will be aided by the IDRA community’s contributions to DroneALERTs global drone safe-fly-zone map.
Both companies are very passionate about actively supporting Women in the Drone Industry and Drone Racing (FPV) community. They are committed in promoting woman in the drone industry by supporting woman drone operators and entrepreneurs. To foster a fun and promising environment for women in Drone Racing (FPV), IDRA and DroneALERT will encourage ladies to join races and help discover sponsorships to support them.
The newly announced partnership fits perfectly into IDRA’s mission to ensure safe drone operations in motorsports and within the international drone community. As IDRA helps introduce more people to the drone industry, DroneALERT gains the opportunity to create future fans of drone racing who understand the global drone laws and who can also share their knowledge on safe drone flying areas. It is highly important that companies like IDRA and DroneALERT discover ways to mutually work together to expand drone education and pilot networks.
The partnership also gives IDRA a great platform to educate commercial and recreational drone operators about DroneALERT’s global services and IDRA’s primary liability insurance, with worldwide coverage. The policy, applicable and affordable to recreational and commercial drone pilots, is a great alternative to the expensive policies from major insurance agencies and other risky secondary policies. As IDRA continues to work hard to grow the international drone community, the association will also help protect it.
The mission of DroneALERT is to provide valuable avenues for the public, and all actors in the drone industry, to easily report drones to support investigations and self-regulate dangerous or illegal drone operations, while providing a solid platform of drone educational information. DroneALERT can be applied to all situations where drones are present, such as airports, events and with Civil Aviation Authorities. Partnering with IDRA as a drone racing association, shows the scalability and reach which DroneALERT can achieve. DroneALERT is pleased to offer to its users another aspect of drone operations via the worldwide liability insurance with IDRA.
