Why You Should Choose A Certified Drone Pilot
On June 1st , 2019, Transport Canada established new Rules and Regulations for RPAS Operation-Or Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems.
With these new Rules came two levels of Piloting requirements:
Basic and Advanced Licensing.
Here at Flight Ready Media, we carry an Advanced rating.
What does this mean?
High-quality cameras generally weigh more than 250 grams, and a heavier more capable drone can handle the elements much better, as well as carry a much heavier camera system or payload.
Transport Canada states that to operate a drone within visual line of sight (VLOS) over 250g requires either a Basic or Advanced Certification, but what are the differences? When and where can I fly?
Our skies are Regulated by Transport Canada and flight operations are managed by NavCanada . We need to know the type of airspace we are operating in at all times in order to stay within regulation (nobody likes a fine!)
To operate a drone, or RPAS, within a Class E Airspace above the sub250 limit, an operator must have their Advanced Certification to receive permission to operate. Not only that, Advanced rated pilots get to apply for a Special Flight Operations Certificate to fly at events, as well as operate in Restricted Airspace.

Liability & Insurance
Did you know that if you crash a drone you can get it replaced if you had it insured? Sure, that's a nice option to have, but that's not what we are talking about here.
Here at Flight Ready Media, we take our work and safety seriously. Regardless of experience and technology, events beyond our control can occur which is why we carry Liability Insurance Coverage at all times.
You'll rest easy knowing that you and your clients are covered.
