rules for flying?Transport canada? commercial RC?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hi everyone,
I wanted to know what the rules for flying are? Do I get them from Transport Canada (I looked, but couldn't find).
I also saw an article somewhere that had a guy from Newfoundland that got certified by transport canada or some kind of commercial RC license(?) or something. How can I get information about getting certified (commercial RC pilots license?)

Any info would help,

rules for flying

Well,there are two thing you should do first.Find your local club who will teach you how to fly and two,join the national organization,MAAC. You will need to be a MAAC member to fly at your local club anyway and they will bring you up to speed on what the national rules and regulation are for flying RC model airplanes.
As for a commercial licence form Transport Canada,I honestly have never heard of one but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
If,bythe way,you have trouble finding a local club,check out the MAAC web site,linked from this site and they can direct to the nearest club.
