Canada Issues New Drone and UAV Rules

Posted December 2nd, 2014 by   |  Photography  |  Permalink

Transport Canada just released new rules regarding the use of small UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) like the DJI Phantom/Inspire in Canadian airspace. The ruling is surprisingly low on regulation and limits commercial licensing requirements to larger drones over 55 pounds. Basically, they are allowing operation of small radio controlled drones under 300′ elevation with no further regulatory requirements. This is great news and I hope the FAA in the USA follows suit with similar regulations.
