Today, Sept. 27th, 2022, ROSOR received a Special Flight Operations Certificate (SFOC) from Transport Canada.
Why would you need SFOC for your Project?
An SFOC gives you permission to operate your drone outside the rules for a specific purpose. You need this certificate if you want to fly your drone outside the rules for basic or advanced operations.
You might be eligible to get an SFOC if:
your drone weighs over 25 kilograms (kg) "as stated in ROSOR's SFOC".
you want to fly your drone beyond the visual line-of-sight
you are not a Canadian citizen, permanent resident of Canada, or a corporation incorporated by or under the laws of Canada or a province you want to fly your drone at higher altitudes
you want to fly more than five drones at the same time
you want to fly at a special aviation event or an advertised event
you want to fly your drone carrying dangerous or hazardous payloads (e.g. chemicals)
you want to fly closer to a military airport.
(Special authorization for the operation of RPA having a maximum takeoff weight of more than 25 Kg.) (Page 3 of 4 from ROSOR's SFOC)
Whatever your project's needs are, in ROSOR we are committed to delivering the best solution for your specific and special needs.
