SFOC Assistance

Operating a UAV for commercial purposes is regulated in Canada by Transport Canada.  For most operations this requires a Special Flight Operations Certificate (SFOC) to be legal.

The SFOC process can seem daunting and complex to new businesses looking to break into the aerial industry.  The terminology and exact requirements of the application can be overwhelming and there are few avenues for clarification.  We provide a number of in depth articles via our blog to assist those looking to learn more about the requirements and process.

In addition to the free information provided via the blog we also provide tailored consulting services to assist operators in developing the needs standard operation procedures, manuals, and SFOC application.

We have aided numerous operators with the process across all regions of Canada as well as having held our own Standing SFOC in multiple regions the last number of years.  Combined with our research and writings on the subject we are able to cover most all requirements for common UAV operations.
