A new leasing financial model needs to be developed in order to address the evolution of threats and technology in the unmanned domain. Speaking to Jane’s at the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International's (AUVSI's) Xponential 2018 in Denver, JetLease vice-president and managing partner for JetLease Unmanned Katy Glynn said that the company is working towards filling the gap between experimental drones and a demand from the market for faster procurement processes, but with tighter budgets.

Governments and commercial clients require a new lease solution, different from the one proposed for manned aircraft. In fact, “you take the same formula you have been using for 35 years, you shift it over to a drone, but unfortunately it doesn’t work,” Glynn said.
