Drones in Canada Facing Regulations

Commercial expansion of Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAV) in Canada has been striking. The Canadian UAV business has gotten so many applications so far.

The expansion is expected to be a nonending one as UAV technology continues to develop in Canada.

Canada regulators have set rules to govern recreational and commercial operations of drones. UAV regulation by Canadian Aviation Regulations has given standard guidelines for UAV operators to acquire a special flight operations certificate (SFOC) depending on the use of the UAV, whether recreational or commercial.

Drones of 35 kilograms or less can be freely used for recreational purposes without a government-issued SFOC but are very much and entirely subjected to safety guidelines. Drones of more than 35 kilograms require a government-issued SFOC to be flown.

Transport Canada has however issued a new registration for UAV, Drones of 25 kilograms or more will continue to follow the regulations by SFOC requirements.
