New Drone Rules & Regulations
The Canadian Gazette dropped the updated rules and regulations on January 9, 2019 that the drone industry had been waiting for. The new revisions can be viewed on the Canadian Gazette or Transport Canada’s website.
The new revisions will not be implemented until June 2019. This means you can continue flying as you have been for the next six months. After June everyone will have to follow the updated regulations and have a Basic or Advanced license. However, both exams are online, and you can take them whenever you want.
For those who don’t have time to read 40 pages of Canadian law we will be offering a refresher course to all our alumni.
WWFC will also be offering several refresher Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) classes throughout the year. These classes will review some of the material that was originally taught, as well as cover all the new regulations and terms published in the Canadian Aviation Regulations. This refresher will help to ensure your successful completion of the online exams and prepare for your flight review.
If you are looking to complete the RPAS advanced certificate, you will also be required to complete a flight in front of a flight examiner. We will have several RPAS flight examiners and will be booking these online at a first come first serve basis.
WWFC strives to maintain a superior level of training to all customers past and present. As the regulations change and evolve, we will ensure we keep you informed and up to date. Should you still have questions please contact our RPAS Manager, Sarah Spry at firstname.lastname@example.org or 519-648-2213 x106 or visit our RPAS website.
