Can I fly here? It’s a common question for drone pilots in Canada. This video outlines the simple guidelines RPAS operators must use to determine if they can fly their drone safely and legally:
1. Are you within an aerodrome keep-out zone or controlled airspace?
2. Are you in any other potentially restricted areas?
3. Are there NOTAMS in effect that would affect flying here?
4. Is there an advertised event happening here?
5. Are there bystanders close to where you will be flying?
And I touch on the subject of privacy as well. Enjoy!

This video was filmed around Beaver Lake, Erinsville, Ontario, Canada in July and August 2019 using a DJI Mavic 2 Pro drone, a DJI Osmo Pocket camera and royalty free stock photos. All filming was done in compliance with the 2019 Canadian RPAS regulations and permission was obtained where necessary.
