The Campaign

We offer drone pilots accurate, competitive single-flight quotes on the spot. What makes our work different is that we use our big data and proprietary analysis to produce a unique result – a single risk metric that represents the risk of any single drone flight, anywhere in the world.

We have secured a partnership with one of the leading aviation insurers – Allianz – to bring instant drone insurance anytime, anywhere. The benefits are wide-ranging: 1. We will offer the most price-competitive insurance for drones in the world. 2. As we insure per flight, we can provide completely customised policies. 3. Our risk intelligence service means operators can fly more safely, which should reduce claims. Flock has raised £500,000 from a range of investors this year and won three technology grants from Innovate UK alongside a grant from the Ordnance Survey, the UK’s leading mapping service.

We’re pioneering data-driven risk intelligence for drones. This risk intelligence powers our consumer app for drone pilots, helping them fly more safely – and also provides insurance providers with a risk metric that helps them quote on individual flights.

We collect a lot of data. We know if the operator is human or software. What kinds of flights, how many, how safe they are. We collect data about the drone itself – weight, speed, operating height. What happens if it lands on someone. Details about your environment. Are you flying near a school, airport or prison? What are the hyper-local weather conditions? Will they change in the next few minutes? Our proprietary algorithm can then analyse your flight plan and quantify the operator’s risk.
