The FAA’s New Digital License Plate Requirement for Drones
January 26, 2021
Drones – also known as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) or unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) – have left no industry unaffected, and the insurance industry is perhaps affected most of all. Unlike manned aircraft, whose risks are largely confined to the industry’s aviation sector, the affordability, versatility, and ubiquity of drones are bringing exposures to sectors of the insurance industry that were previously insulated from aviation risks. For these carriers especially, it is vitally important to acquaint themselves with this technology and the complex web of federal, state, and local laws that govern them.
Butler believes in partnering with our clients as a synergistic team – every step of the way. In fulfilling that principle, Butler last year prepared Butler on Drones: A Practical Guide for Insurers as an electronic book provided exclusively to our clients to help them stay ahead of the social, legal, and technological changes being brought about by the widespread proliferation of drones. Butler on Drones: A Practical Guide for Insurers is full of useful information about the capabilities, regulation, and potential liability arising from the ownership and operation of drones. We are pleased to announce the release of our popular EBook’s Second Edition, which takes account of significant legal and technological changes that have occurred since the original publication.
