New Drone Rules Great News for Farms

As of June 1, everyone operating a drone over 250 grams will require a Certificate from Transport Canada to operate a drone.

For most farmers and rural businesses, a Basic Certificate will suffice – it will allow you to fly only in uncontrolled (Class G) airspace and at least 3 nautical miles (5.6 km) from certified airports / 1 nautical mile (1.9 km) from certified heliports. Not sure what that means for you? Well, there's a new tool for that too: the NRC has created the Drone Site Selection Too
