ILLEGALLY flying a DRONE in Canada

ILLEGALLY flying a DRONE in Canada

Colour Graded with my PM LUTS Pack :
The Music I use:

It’s 2017 – we often asks ourselves, Where can I fly a drone? Is it safe to fly my drone here? Am I allowed to fly a drone here? WILL I BE ARRESTED?

Transport Canada just released a new set of Drone Laws for recreational and professional use. Do I agree with them? Some. But I do think it inhibits creators with how many new limitations are at play.

    I am a fan, Peter. Keep providing these videos! That being said, I have been a pilot for thirty years or more. Airspace was the domain of trained pilots until recently. Pilots spend hundreds of hours studying for the privilege of operating aircraft in national airspace. Now, someone can buy a drone, unbox it, and launch into that very same airspace. Laws have to be modified to make this a safe transition. Many aviation rules of operation are meant to insure safe separation. These new laws in Canada and the United States are attempting to do just that. Nothing is perfect right away. Here in the United States airplane pilots cannot generally fly below 500 feet in un-congested areas. When they do, it is at an airport. This is just one example. In order to accomplish separation, drone pilots must fly below 400 feet, 100 feet below airplanes, and cannot fly without special permission near airports where airplanes will most definitely be below 400 feet. This is a simple explanation of just one factor. It does, however, make sense. I also fly drones. If we exam the new rules, we will be able to clearly see how the application of new rules is meant to keep everyone safe. Clouds, for instance: I cannot fly any airplane within a certain distance of clouds unless I am on an instrument flight plan. Drone rules are as restrictive as airplane rules. Unless you are on an instrument flight plan with your drone (not possible for now), the drone must remain a certain distance from the clouds. These rules are not arbitrary. My thoughts . . .

    From YouTube music copyrights to illegally flying drones to capture an amazing shot. Since when does the online filming industry starts to get even more restricted?

  6. MotoLife on June 9, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Did you see the new Drone rules come June 2019?

  7. Awais Ahmad on June 9, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Soo i live in pakistan!
    No drone laws here!! ✌️😁😁

  8. Vitaly. S. on June 9, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    Marijuana is legal what’s going to kill millions of people, that’s okay no problem.
    But flying drone for hobby wow that’s a huge problem.
    Canada Canada what you thinking.
    Where is the logic???

  9. Rohan Pulavarthy on June 9, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    3 year old version of Pete is still amazing!

  10. CadLab Machining Studios on June 9, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    The B roll and that song are so delicious.!! sweet work

  11. Iris on June 9, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    In belgium we can only fly 10meters with a drone less than 1kg on our own terrain so we can’t fly at fields, or above trees, we can just doo NOTHING, but I don’t care, nobody sees a mavic air flying in a forest at 100meters high

  12. Alexander Cernecca on June 9, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    watching from 2021 "this is a bit sus"

  13. Kevin Eleven on June 9, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    911 there’s a guy in Dark clothing and a hoodie with a drone. LoL 😆

  14. ben kosiek on June 9, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    @9:41 Peter predicted covid

  15. Exploring With Phat Mike on June 9, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    I’d watch it

  16. Anna Kincaid on June 9, 2022 at 7:29 pm

    I looked up the no fly zones in the area I live (western Washington) and up in Canada and basically you can’t fly it any where legally. super lame…… We plan to go to whistler and I was hoping to get a few in the air shots not super high up or next to people just to get another angle you know but basically all of whistler, Vancouver and western wa are no fly zones…..

  17. urbaine exploration outaouais on June 9, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    I am in canada i ave the sparks lolololol i ame secure bit the raw lololol

  18. Grant Newman on June 9, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    Is that the same field that the YouTuber Stromedy went to?

  19. Rod MacPherson on June 9, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    How do you like the new 2019 rules? Seems like it makes things a lot easier for creators.

  20. Exploring With Phat Mike on June 9, 2022 at 7:33 pm


  21. yomesh ale on June 9, 2022 at 7:33 pm

    yes bro it’s a bummer with so many new rules, i have dji mavic air and i hardly get to use it because of many restrictions which is not so cool

  22. Charn Maan on June 9, 2022 at 7:33 pm

    And mid prize dron camera

  23. JETPILOT RC on June 9, 2022 at 7:34 pm

    Hope they don’t have laws for toothbrushes.. Canada has gone nuts

  24. Daniel Craig Beebe on June 9, 2022 at 7:34 pm

    yeah, drone laws are crazy. you can bring guns more places than drones these days. 🙁

  25. Nemesis 851 on June 9, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    Time to make a new video – as I’m seeing NEW July 2019 laws/rules are coming up in my searches (Canada)

  26. Steinar Offroad on June 9, 2022 at 7:36 pm

    Not withing 75 meters of people, I hope nobody bought the spark lmao

  27. MTBC-TRAILS MIHAJLOVIC on June 9, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    I am with you man 100% and just wandering how about movie productions that they are using drone to shoot there movies.

  28. George Bethanis on June 9, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    I guess the rules are there to prosecute you if something bad happens and it is your fault. Not sure if they will aggressively enforce these laws. It will be a bummer if they do.

    But yeah, idiots who fly drones over or near airports destroy the drone user community, and screw everyone else in the process.

  29. JetSmackedHD on June 9, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    its the RCMP’s problem, not a regional police

  30. Jonathan McLaren on June 9, 2022 at 7:42 pm

    Technically… anyone can call 911 on anyone for anything…

    911: 911, what is your emergency?
    CALLER: These kids are chewing gum.
    911: Sir…

  31. Rebel Patriot_nc_91 on June 9, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    "…like the CDC didn’t want…👀" 🤣

  32. Mangga Gaming. on June 9, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    Little did he know that he cant fly the drone now…🙁

  33. Rustic & Refined on June 9, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    Please can I have a link to this song?? I have to buy this song at 1:30, it rocks! Love this song as well as the vid

  34. Gee on June 9, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    I don’t know if you’ve still got that holga but if you do could you please make a video taking photos with it, I think it’d be so interesting to see what you can come up with on 120 film. I know its a cute little toy camera, but its one that enables so many people to shoot medium format film cheaply and I’d just like to see you have some fun with it I suppose

  35. sraptes NextLevel on June 9, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    Love your videos Peter!!<3

  36. Sean Stout on June 9, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    I don’t own a drone, however some of those laws are going to make matters worse than they are

  37. John Paul Legaspi on June 9, 2022 at 7:48 pm

    Nice Video Pete!

  38. Jessie Weaver on June 9, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    In Arkansas we have to get a private pilot certification to fly, if you are using it for business purposes. You can even be fined up to $10,000. And a lot of the laws are the same in the United States.

  39. Ron Vasserman on June 9, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    I feel like these rules were wrtitten by the same grandmas who hate on the Lime scooters in LA

  40. Alvaro Torrado on June 9, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    Hey Peter, good video. I want to buy a Mavic Mini as it is under 250 grams but I have no idea where I can fly it in Toronto. It is been a while since you posted this video, how the rules are being applied? How can I know where can I fly legally my drone? I read that most parks banned drones

  41. Cole Denham on June 9, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    Thats bull shit

  42. E. N on June 9, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    Why do you want to buy a drone if you won’t be able to fly it freely??

  43. Peter McKinnon on June 9, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    Travel Video – Yes? No? 100000%?!

  44. Tony Silva - SkyViews on June 9, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    Your vids are Awesome Bud! I’m a Portuguese/

    Canadian living in Portugal! If your over my way in Portugal 🇵🇹, give me a ring! Awesome places to film!

  45. Adibrex on June 9, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    Here in spain there is a 20 meter limit from the ground to flying above buildings

  46. JJ on June 9, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    hi 250g is that included battery ? My spark weights 205g without the battery and with the battery is 300g

  47. reuben kerr on June 9, 2022 at 8:02 pm


  48. Renê Faller on June 9, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    Here in Brazil the airforce control the regulations for drones, but if you have (if I’m not mistaken) less than 180g you don’t need to registrate and the air laws don’t apply to you, except in regards to fly and film to close of people without permission and you can’t fly near the airports or military bases

  49. kingbanksss on June 9, 2022 at 8:05 pm

    If I fly my drone and its not registered or anything. How could they even catch me ? I need to know lol

  50. Timothy du Toit on June 9, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    Here in South Africa, drone laws strictly prohibit you from flying anywhere near any form of accident. I was flying my drone up about 250m and saw an accident happen, police arrived as I was busy landing. One of the officers walked over and asked if I could pop up into the air to get some shots for them😂
