HOW to LEGALLY FLY A DRONE – Canada Drone Laws 2021

Welcome back to my channel guys. In today’s video, I address HOW to LEGALLY FLY A DRONE

In 2019 the laws in Canada made it close to impossible to fly a drone legally without a license. In today’s video, I’ll be going over the 5 steps required to become a fully certified advanced drone operator in Canada in 2021.

It is a bit of a process I won’t downplay that, however, being a fully certified pilot gives you a lot of peace of mind on top of much more freedom to fly while still following the rules and regulations provided by Transport Canada.

Below are some of the links I used to study for my basic and advanced exams:

AIM DOC (This pretty much has all the info you need, its a huge document. I would also highly suggest using google and other resources for your studying in addition to using the AIM document)

Hope you guys found this video helpful!

    Great video – I plan to get a drone just waiting for the newest one. Is it worth doing the advance test without having a drone yet.

    Where can you fly a drone under 250 gram?

    Great video thanks for posting. A small point of interest you can go straight into the advanced RPAS without first getting your basic license if you should so wish. That being said I did start with my basic. only because i failed the advanced first.

    I have a question, I live in Canada and have mavic mini meaning that it’s under 250 grams. Do I still need a licence?

    I’m taking my 107 test in Florida this week, but I’m headed to Canada this summer, I want to fly my air 2 while in NS. I am a dual can/USA citizen but can’t get a log on for Canada because I don’t have a Canadian bank account to get a log on with the Canadian government. Any ideas? Larry

    Thank you for the info.

    You don’t need to do the basic first before doing the advance. You can just do the advance exam if you are confident enough

    Nice video. Please note that all you say only applies to drones 250 g or more according to TC regulations. So if you have a Dji Mini 2 which is less than 250 g there is no need to register, no lic required, just fly safely. These ‘toy drones’ can be flown without registration. Just don’t do anything stupid and stay away from people. There are local restrictions though like here in GTA you cannot fly in a city park.

    Good video. thanks for posting. i lost my first drone without even knowing it had to be registered and I needed a license. I took the basic exam, passed and got another budget drone. It was challenging to find places to fly in Edmonton. Now I have a Mini 2 and so for I’m very happy. I’ll get the advanced license eventually, but my drone footage will mostly revolve around bicycle tours and the Mini is ideal for that because of its size.

    What happens if your under 14? Just got a drone and I can’t register it cause I’m under 14. Do I get my parents to register it for me?
