"EXEMPTION FROM SECTIONS 602.41 AND 603.66 OF THE
CANADIAN AVIATION REGULATIONS
Pursuant to Subsection 5.9(2) of the Aeronautics Act, and after having determined that the exemption is in
the public interest and is not likely to adversely affect aviation safety, I hereby exempt persons conducting
flight operations utilizing unmanned air vehicles (UAVs), with a maximum take-off weight of 1 kilogram or
less, operated within visual line-of-sight, from the requirements of sections 602.41 and 603.66 of the
Canadian Aviation Regulations (CARs), subject to the conditions set out below."
PURPOSE: This exemption relieves persons conducting UAV system operations utilizing a UAV with a maximum takeoff weight of 1 kilogram or less, operated within visual line-of-sight from the requirement to obtain a Special Flight Operations Certificate (SFOC) as required by section 602.41 and the requirement to comply with the conditions of an SFOC as required by section 603.66 of the CARs. The exemption will permit UAVs with a maximum take-off weight of 1 kilogram or less to be operated away from built-up areas, controlled airspace, aerodromes, forest fire areas and other restricted locations. UAV operations conducted outside the terms and conditions of this exemption are subject to the requirements for an SFOC, regardless of the weight of the UAV.
This 1-day course also may be of interest for those who would like a practical introduction to UAS and/or model radio controlled aircraft rules and regulations to enhance safe practice, learn more about the industry and commercial applications using smaller UAS in sparsely settled areas.
Moreover, new students interested in UAS 101 or UAS 200 may wish to start by taking this course to start their unmanned aircraft system training experience in order to be more prepared.
