In 2017, DARTdrones and Global Aerospace announced their new partnership where DARTdrones was named a Global Aerospace SM4 Aviation Safety Program Training Partner. In just one year, the two industry leaders worked together on multiple projects to provide the sUAS community with webinars, white papers, newsletters, discounts, training and more to increase overall drone operator safety.
With 2019 quickly approaching, DARTdrones is excited to recognize the partnership for a year of success as well as an advanced drone training workshop to be co-hosted by the industry leader in aerospace insurance and risk management solutions, Global Aerospace.
The Success of a Strong Partnership
One year ago, DARTdrones and Global Aerospace secured a partnership which was built off of the SM4 Aviation Safety Program. The Global Aerospace SM4 Program was developed on the concept of integrating four critical safety components: planning, prevention, response, and recovery. Its mission is to meet the needs of the aviation and aerospace industries by providing access to cutting edge safety services, enhanced training efforts, monthly aviation safety newsletters, as well as SM4 website resources targeted to this sector.
Throughout the first year of DARTdrones being a SM4 Safety Program Training Partner, the two companies worked together to create various resources, a few being:
- A popular webinar on “Insurance Considerations for Drone Pilots Featuring Global Aerospace and Verifly“
- A white paper on “An Analysis of the Drone Industry’s Progress and Focus on Safety“
- An SM4 Safety Program Newsletter on “sUAS Crisis Management: Ensuring Successful Communications During Crisis Response Operations“
- An SM4 Safety Program Newsletter on “Developing a Safety Culture Through an Internal Pilot Qualification Program“
- A flight checklist provided free of charge to thousands of Global Aerospace customers
“Drone operators insured by Global Aerospace all over the country have benefitted from the safety services DARTdrones have been able to deliver. Their expertise has helped elevate safety within the whole industry.” Commented Chris Proudlove, senior vice president and and head of UAS at Global Aerospace.
Throughout this partnership, DARTdrones has been pleased to offer Global Aerospace clients with exclusive offers such as a 20% discount on all DARTdrones Open Enrollment and Online drone training courses, a 10% discount on all on-site custom drone training and consulting services as well as multiple exclusive resources including webinars, an Expanded Flight Checklist, and a Program Manager’s Guide.
