*** Changes Coming to SFOC Application Process for Small UAV/UAS/RPA ***
In June 2012, the UAV Working Group provided its recommendations for Phase 1 (regulations governing design standards and operation of small UAVs (25kg or less) within visual line-of-sight) to the CARAC Technical Committee for comment and approval. These recommendations and Technical Committee comments were accepted and subsequently reviewed and approved by the Transport Canada Canadian Aviation Regulatory Committee (CARC). The recommended regulatory changes are being held by TC pending completion of the next three phases of the UAV Working Group deliberations.
However, TC has committed to amending the UAV SFOC Staff Instructions to reflect the proposed regulations to the maximum extent possible, by recognizing these proposed regulatory requirements as “best practices”. Applicants complying with these practices would have greater assurance of SFOC approval, and regional inspector workload would be reduced when reviewing renewal applications from organizations that have been determined to meet proposed regulatory requirements.
To learn the details of the proposed regulations and how the new SFOC process may affect you and your operations, be sure to attend the Unmanned Systems Canada Conference in Vancouver from 12-14 November 2013. A workshop and other presentations are planned to explain the changes.
