Yes advanced will cost you but you don't need the advanced unless you will be flying in controlled airspace.
Not entirely true, there are more scenarios than that as to when an advanced licence ( and flight review) is required:

Advanced operations
If you meet any 1 of these conditions, you are conducting advanced operations:

You want to fly in controlled airspace
You want to fly over bystanders
You want to fly within 30 metres (100 feet) of bystanders (measured horizontally)

Re: New Drone Rules Tomorrow

Basic operations
If you meet all 3 of these conditions, you're conducting basic operations:

You fly it in uncontrolled airspace
You fly it more than 30 metres (100 feet) horizontally from bystanders
You never fly it over bystanders
If you do not meet any 1 of these 3 conditions, you are conducting advanced operations.

For example, let’s say you fly your drone more than 30 metres (100 feet) horizontally from bystanders but in controlled airspace. This operation is advanced because you’re flying in controlled airspace even if you’re more than 30 metres (100 feet) horizontally from bystanders.

For basic operations, here are some of the rules you must follow:

Register your drone with Transport Canada before you fly it for the first time
Mark your drone with its registration number
Pass the Small Basic Exam
Be able to show your Pilot Certificate – Basic Operations and proof of registration when you fly

Re: New Drone Rules Tomorrow

Yup and still no word on an exemption for maac..

And yet I can still not believe the stupidity of it all.. Any self respecting LHS should inform the customer of the new rules.. and the costs.. now do you think this will help the sale.. or kill it..

Now do you think that a customer buying a drone for their 15 year old kid is going to pay 500 odd dollars to send him/her to drone school and then pay to take the online test and then pay to register it..

NOT BLOODY LIKELY. !!

No it will be .. here is your present.. go have fun... just fly it over in the park.

“Drone school” is not required. All the study information can be found online. $10 to write the exam, $5 to register the drone.

Advanced ops also require a flight review, and not all drones/quads qualify for advanced ops.

If it is under 250 grams they certainly can fly it in a park.. But I would check with the local bylaws first.

Most cities have banned or will be banning any RC activity within city limits.
