How do you reply to a comment here?

Kelsey Ferland, my father lives in Mississauga, so I came by a few times. One time I went by the lake at Port Credit, and I saw a DJI Phantom going by. I think it's fine there since, you are over 9km from Pearson airport (12km), and also the airport at the Toronto Island (17km).

I'm thinking of building my first quadcopter, but the TC regulations are what's stopping me right now. I live right in the middle of Mississauga, so there's not really anywhere nearby for me to fly a drone (at least that is what I gathered from the regulations). I currently don't have a vehicle either, so I can't get out of the city to fly it. Am I basically out of luck?

@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.

Ok someone help me understand these government regulations

solo3dr and for fun but would like to take a course.

Ive read the regs until my eyes went crossed eyed

rule 75? 500 feet from people, animals.. doesn't that eliminate flying Canada?

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).


Comment by RPM on February 10, 2016 at 9:40am

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.
