As we here at DroneVU Studios look forward to the FAA’s formal unveiling of drone regulations, Canada has revealed there’s in the form of a formal guidance for Canadian drone operators.
Transport Canada’s guidelines include not operating drones within 8km of airports, no higher than 90 meters, and not over heavily populated areas. In addition, Transport Canada recommends that the drone only be flown line of site and that a Flight Operations Certificate be obtained if the drone is used for commercial use or weighs more than 35kg.
Here at DroneVU studios, we place safety first in everything we do and we thing the rules are very reasonable. One of the reasons why we only specialize in real estate is because other potential drone uses typically involve greater risk to people on the ground such as sporting events, weddings, highways, busy neighborhoods, etc.
