Thank you for showcasing your solutions to Commercial UAV Expo Americas attendees through your participation in the “Beyond the Cage” Outdoor Drone Demonstrations!
On this page you’ll find information about the demonstrations and a link to a form with a list of items we need from you to promote your participation and ensure compliance with legal and insurance needs.
Please fill out any information you can about your demo as soon as possible. The sooner we get the information, the sooner we’ll be able to promote your participation.
It’s okay if you can’t supply everything immediately. Give us what you can now and we’ll follow up on anything outstanding.
Please note: Crew information (email, phone), aircraft(s) being flown and props required onsite are due July 1, 2021. A copy of the Drone Pilot’s 107 Certification and a certificate of Aviation Operator’s Insurance are due by August 1, 2021.
Participants will have the opportunity to rehearse their demonstration at the flight site on Sunday, September 5 (by appointment only) and on Monday September 6 (12pm – 5pm). While it is not required that participants fly during the rehearsal, it is highly recommended for purposes of safety, professional presentation, and understanding of the flight environment.
However, ALL participants are required to attend the Safety Briefing on Monday, September 6 at 3:00PM.

A. Yes! There is the Addendum you’ll need to fill out, execute and upload in addition to the (Demonstrator Details Form.)
If the drone pilot is an employee of yours and is not a hired third party, your insurer will provide the insurance information required. If you hired them for this demonstration they will need to provide Diversified with the insurance information. The ACORD form illustrates the $1M in Aviation Operator’s insurance required and how Diversified should be named as an additional insured. If Aviation Operations are not included in your General Liability coverage, the pilot’s insurance broker should be given the form and asked to provide similar information about the pilot’s policy.
Please note: Pilot information, a copy of the Drone Pilot’s 107 Certification and a certificate of Aviation Operator’s Insurance are due by August 1, 2021.
