How to Fly your Drone in Canada

As of June 1, 2019, anyone looking to fly a drone in Canada is regulated by Part IX of the Canadian Aviation Regulations (CARs).

The quick and dirty on the changes are:

  1. Everyone must register their drones if they 250g or more.
  2. Everyone must obtain either a basic or advanced pilot certificate.
  3. You must be at least 14 years of age to obtain a pilot certificate.
  4. You must keep your drone within line of sight when flying.
  5. You are permitted to fly to a max altitude of 400′ above ground.
  6. Foreign pilots are required to obtain a SFOC before flying in Canada.
