Starr Companies will start offering commercial drone insurance to members of The Academy of Model Aeronautics, or AMA.

Jim Anderson, Starr’s senior vice president, Aviation, said that the insurance will be provided to AMA members via the Harry A. Koch Agency.

Anderson also noted that the AMA has been a pioneer in providing training to the drone community, and added that the partnership makes sense in that context.

“The UAS market is growing rapidly and many of the existing members of the AMA will need a quick and cost-effective insurance” product, Anderson said in prepared remarks.
