Farmers Insurance drone Inspections

Tim Murray, head of inside and national property claims for Farmers, said that when the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) last year adopted Part 107 to open commercial airspace for drones on a limited basis, the time was right to employ them as a tool for claims adjusters in the field.

“We’d been exploring the use of drones for about four years, but didn’t really feel like it was a great entry point until the FAA put Part 107 in place,” he explained. “It allowed us to effectively use the technology in a real situation. That’s what propelled us to get down to testing it.”
