Global Aerospace Names DARTdrones as Their SM4 Safety Program UAV Training Partner

We could not be more excited to announce our new partnership with Global Aerospace! We are teaming up with the industry leader in aerospace insurance to increase drone operator safety through UAV training.

The industry leader in UAV training and the leading provider of aerospace insurance and risk management solutions announce a partnership which will provide sUAS operators with exclusive resources and opportunities to increase the safety culture within the drone industry. DARTdrones will be the exclusive UAV training partner of Global Aerospace’s famed SM4 Safety Program.

The Global Aerospace SM4 Safety Program was built 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.

Since 2010, Global Aerospace has committed over $4 million to support SM4 and help its clients pursue higher levels of safety. Now entering its 9th year, SM4 continues to expand by providing targeted subject matter experts and financial support to the aerospace sector. The SM4 Community of Excellence, launched in 2016, was designed to elevate the program and deliver unmatched service to the aviation industry. The Community of Excellence Partners and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) continue to revolutionize the SM4 Program to make it more visible and provide easy access to the many safety benefits it provides. DARTdrones is pleased to partner with this industry expert to launch new offerings and help improve the overall safety of the aviation community.

DARTdrones has been committed to helping organizations develop safe and efficient sUAS programs with their vetted expert flight instructors offering distinct in-person and online training courses, custom training programs (including mission-specific training) and consulting services (including SOP manual development).  As DARTdrones continues to grow, developing safety considerations is at the forefront of the curriculum development within these programs.

Chris Proudlove, the Senior Vice President at Global Aerospace who leads the UAS program commented, “We are very excited about our partnership with DARTdrones. As a leading provider of UAS insurance, we are committed to finding our customers the best training available. DARTdrones’ unique range of in-person and online training courses provides just that.”
