Rocky Aviation - aviation sales and insurance


Cover yourself and your business in the emerging industry of drones and unmanned aircraft.

Unmanned aircraft vehicles (UAV) or more commonly, drones, are a quickly-emerging technology that has enormous potential to spark a revolution across multiple industries, or at the very least increase efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Drones are becoming cheaper, smaller, more powerful, and easier to operate. The commercial drone industry is currently growing at an unprecedented rate, with new solutions, models, and companies marketing new technology every day. Drones have the potential to both solve problems and save costs in future across a number of industries, throughout the developing world and in disaster relief scenarios.

With the increases in use the potential risks of this technology also grow. Advances in drone technology are inevitably accompanied by a host of new risks. As the industry continues to grow and mature, drone companies strive to find more efficient ways to manage and transfer risk.

The Unique Risks Drone Companies Face

Liability Risks: The industry continues to see heavier regulation and the potential for expensive liability claims is increasing. Claims can be made against manufacturers (product liability), businesses and operators for property damage, bodily injuries, and financial damages that occur in day-to-day drone operations.

Cyber Security: Cybercriminals could take control of a drone in flight causing it to collide with other aircraft or ground objects and cause material damage and loss of life. Wi-Fi or radio signals controlling the drone can be hacked and are referred to as “spoofing” attacks. Sensitive data recorded by drones can be illegally intercepted in flight while the drone is transmitting information back to the control station. Once that data is stored it can also be compromised by cyber-attacks.

Privacy Issues: Privacy violations that drone usage may lead to is a concern for the public. According to the Pew Research Center 54% of the public thinks drones should not be allowed to fly in residential areas. Commercial drones are usually restricted to protected areas and used with a lot more care than a hobbyist drone, but privacy lawsuits remain a serious concern.

Regulatory Challenges: UAV regulation is still in its infancy and the legal landscape around drones is shifting fast.

Rocky Aviation - Sales and Insurance


After I listed my experimental aircraft on Barnstormer’s, I was quickly over-run by tire kickers and curiosity seekers. After a few days, I was so frustrated that I cancelled the listing. I was fortunate to find Rocky Aviation, who worked diligently to sell the plane for me. They quickly found a buyer for the plane and handled all of the details such as the contract, escrow, final transactions and delivery. I was so pleased with the ease of the transaction that I asked them to find the “right” Cessna 182 for me. Again – they worked almost non-stop and creatively to find the plane that I was looking for. I highly recommend the services provided by Dustin, Stephanie, and Rion. They are good, honest people who do what they say will do."

Over the last 10 years, I have depended on Rocky Aviation’s founder – Dustin - for the acquisition or sale of aircraft on at least 8 transactions. He is always the critical difference in finding reliable aircraft. I have found his aviation knowledge to be vast. His integrity and ethics are beyond reproach. In many cases Dustin has also provided transition training and risk advice. I would enthusiastically recommend Dustin to anyone looking to make the best aviation decision."

Recently, Rocky Aviation assisted with the sale of my aircraft. It was a pleasurable experience from negotiations to closing. Through their marketing and networking efforts, they helped me net about 10% more than I thought was possible. Additionally, much valuable aviation business advice was gained along the way. It would be my pleasure to recommend Rion and Rocky Aviation to family, friends or associates to assist with a future aircraft transaction.
