July 2019 / / Security Business 35 tions ( cover a broad spectrum of commercial uses for drones weighing less than 55 pounds. Security integrators should be familiar with these FAA regulations; and all drone pilots will need to pass testing to become FAA Part 107-certified. Further, training pilot(s) should focus on several recommended and required items: • Imaging – how to get the best photos and videos from your drones; • Training on specific flights and missions for your target market(s); • FAA-approved flight training, which is available online; as well as • Drone manufacturer-specific pilot certification (be ready for the next big changes in the drone industry, like Fixed Wing, BVLOS and Drone in a Box, which will require more certification and training). Beyond training and compliance, commercial drone liability insurance is a must-have. It typically covers the expenses of accidental injuries or property damage resulting from drone use, including bodily injury, disability and even death resulting from a drone crash (it does not cover the drone itself). Drone liability insurance providers may sell a specialty policy specific for drone use or as part of a larger commercial general liability policy. Specialty drone insurers include companies such as Global Aerospace and Aerial Park, but security integrators should first check with their general liability insurance provider. Additionally, marketing the new drone services is critical, because of the newness of the offerings. Create a custom landing page on your website optimized to create leads coming from your location – meaning your business will show up on top of Google when someone searches for drone services in your service area(s). Be sure to convey aspects of your service and of the product that are crucial to the end-user’s needs.
