CORVALLIS, OR – 9/5/2017 – Drone Complier is pleased to announce that it has been contracted by Special Districts Insurance Services (SDIS) to provide statewide Drone operations training courses and management software to public employees, board members, and volunteers around the state.
SDIS is a self-insured trust that provides property, liability, auto, health, dental, and workers’ compensation coverage to over 900 of Oregon’s special districts. To further strengthen their risk management program, they have engaged Drone Complier to help provide their members the training they need and the management tools required to conduct safe, unmanned flight operations for education, public safety, and research.
As part of this contract, Drone Complier will conduct classroom and flight training courses at 6 locations around the state, and provide licenses and support for Drone Complier software to enable entities to manage their drone operations safely and ensure compliance with state and federal regulations. Drone Complier has conducted hundreds of training courses throughout the United States and Australia, and helped thousands of operators achieve certification. Their Drone Complier software has already been used by organizations including Oregon State University and the Australian Government.
“We are very pleased to have been chosen to help so many Oregonians take flight, from educators to first responders,” said Drone Complier CEO Wayne Rochat. “Oregon is proving itself a national leader in unmanned aviation, and innovative programs like SDIS’s are a major contributor to our state’s growing reputation.”
