Drones are proving to be an affordable, scalable solution for conducting aerial inspections. For large businesses looking to conduct adjustments more efficiently, drones are the optimal way to conserve time and money. In 2016, the FAA’s updated regulations granted insurers approval to use drones for aerial inspections — and so began a slow but steady transformation within the insurance industry that has led to time and cost efficiencies for inspections. Now, rather than sending adjusters up to dangerous heights on potentially-unstable foundation, drone pilots are assigned to survey damage and deliver high-quality imagery to help with claims handling, risk assessment and payment.
