Belleville, MI: On [DATE TBD], the International Drone Racing Association (IDRA) will launch the first primary UAV Aircraft Liability Insurance policy to cover drone pilots worldwide. Included with the rollout of IDRA’s membership service, each IDRA member will be insured, with a

“Since 2015, we have wanted to offer memberships to the association; however, it was a necessity to ensure that our memberships carried value and were useful for the member,” said Justin Haggerty, the Founder and CEO of IDRA. “An IDRA member should be able to explain why he or she is a member, even if it is free.
