The increased use and rapidly progressing technology of unmanned aerial vehicles, or UAVs, also known as drones are a growing part of the agricultural industry. As their popularity increases, however, so does the possibility of interference with traditional, manned aircrafts. Thus, there are currently unique challenges in regulating the safe integration of UAVs into the Canadian airspace.
Fly Under 400′
For the safety of manned flight and to avoid interfering with larger aircraft, always fly below 400 feet.
Only Fly Over Your Own Property
Make sure to keep your drone over your own property to avoid interference with other unmanned aircrafts in the area.
Maintain Visual Line of Site of the Aircraft
Keep your aircraft in view at all times throughout flight. Don’t fly behind obstacles or at distances that make it impossible to see your platform.
Only Fly for Your Own Use
If you fly for your neighbour, you’re considered ‘commercial’ and you require liability insurance and an SFOC (ask your AgCon Aerial Rep for details).
