3-axis gimbal and 2.7K camera, 30 min flight time. Includes controller.
The Government of Canada has specific rules and regulations in place for drone use that must be followed by all participants.
All pilots of drones that weigh between 250 g and 25 kg must get a drone pilot certificate and must have the drone registered with Transport Canada.. However, since Modern Fuel’s drone weighs 249 kg, users do not need a pilot certificate and do not need to be registered.
When flying the drone, make sure you can see it at all times and stay away from bystanders, at a minimum distance of 30 meters for basic operations. You must fly below 122 meters (400 feet) in the air, staying away from other aircraft such as airplanes, helicopters, and other drones. Do not fly at the site of emergency operations or advertised events. Avoid forest fires, outdoor concerts, and parades.
Do not fly within 5.6 kilometres (3 nautical miles) from airports or 1.9 kilometres (1 nautical mile) from heliports. And always respect the privacy of others while flying.
Additional rules apply depending on your type of operation: basic and advanced.
You are conducting basic operations if you meet all three of these conditions:
- You fly your drone in uncontrolled airspace,
- You fly your drone more than 30 metres (100 feet) horizontally from bystanders,
- You never fly your drone over bystanders.
If you do not meet any of these three conditions, you are conducting advanced operations which includes:
- You want to fly in controlled airspace
- You want to fly over bystanders
- You want to fly within 30 meters (100 feet) of bystanders (measured horizontally)
Rules for Advanced Drone Operations
In addition to the general rules for flying a drone in Canada, pilots conducting advanced drone operations must have an Advanced Operations Pilot Certificate regardless of the size or weight of the drone. This certificate requires an exam and in-person flight review. The flight review will assess a pilot’s ability to operate their drone safely. Fly with a drone that meets RPAS Safety Assurance standards. Survey the area where you will fly. Take note of any obstacles, such as buildings and power lines.
Please note that Modern Fuel is not responsible for any fines or charges acquired by a drone user during time of rental. Any fines or charges will be paid by the member on file. Please use our drone responsibly and at your own risk. For more information on Canada’s drone laws, see the TCAA website.
