@William FYI - if you're looking to stay compliant and make sense of all of the TC regs - a new website called launched which takes online SFOC applications. It makes things really simple, you can start your application by filling out a form and they will compile an application for a permit and walk you through the application.

@William :

For the course check or (this last one is more for pro pilot)

For the rules, even the regulators sometimes can't give you the answer to a simple question.

Ive read the regs until my eyes went crossed eyed

Yes (RPM) - I took the UAV Ground School course, and yes, it satisfies the Transport Canada requirement.

I believe they have one (slightly cheaper) if you're only going for the two exemptions, and another more detailed if you're going for SFOCs. (I took the SFOC one).

This is the course option I have been looking into. It is much more reasonably priced and I believe there is still no exact requirements as to which course you have to take. Just that you need completion of ground school training course.

Hi I'm from Vancouver I'm new to drones. I wanted to know what's going on with FAA. Are they going to allow drones to fly now.

If you are a drone enthusiastic , an amateur,, a processional, a scientist or if you just have an interest in drone / UAV / RPAS, please consider to join Unmanned system Canada, it's the only one association that can promote and defend your right (present and future) to flight safely.
