Drone License and Registration


       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I just read an article in Aviation International News that Canada passed a law to require Drone registration along with obtaining a pilots license to fly them. Is this going to affect RC model aviation? It goes on to say regardless of whether is it flown for fun, work or research.

The new terminology applying to radio control craft is RPAS. Lots of reading plus many links to more.

Re: Drone License and Registration

The bottom line we get from our reps is: If you fly at a MAAC sanctioned field following MAAC rules, you are exempt. You still need to put your ID on the model and phone number though. As Mike mentioned, there are other threads here discussing this at length.

Re: Drone License and Registration

As of June 1 2019, anyone who flies a drone (any remotely piloted aircraft) between 250 grams to 25 kg will be required to have a pilots license ( obtainable online through Transport Canada) and register each aircraft . MAAC is in the process of having MAAC sanctioned fields exempt from these rules.

Re: Drone License and Registration

So I fly out on my farm and have 20 some aircraft. would I have to register all 20 aircraft plus get a license for each transmitter and a basic pilots license?
I am old and it is hard to get my brain around all this. It is easier to fly than knowing all the regulations. Even trying to find threads is hard for me to navigate so forgive me if I am posting this in the wrong place.

Re: Drone License and Registration

Are you a member of MAAC , our national organization ? What is the closest distance from where you fly and other people’s buildings ? How far are from any airport , even a flying farmers grass field ?

You are only a few minutes from Prince Albert Sask. go on MAAC and check out their club contact fir some local information and who knows , many like minded people.

Need the basic BS TC licence, and reg each plane you actively fly not each transmitter.
Cheaper than maac if you only fly at your farm.

Re: Drone License and Registration

And the cost of personal liability insurance ? No support for the organization that helped protect our freedoms we enjoyed in the the past ?

Re: Drone License and Registration

Flying Rc is a privilege of TC allowing not a freedom the national organization helped to protect. More like had to bend over for the handshake to keep the privilege that can change at anytime in the farce of safety.
