I was thinking how they stop drones from buzzing around large events.

So i google for the past Seoul Olympics and they had drones on guard with large nets to catch your non authorized drone.
Did I post something that interests you? Feel free to PM further questions.

have you guys download the UAV app and change the distance setting. I changed the airports to 5.9KM and helicopers to 1.9km. seems like there are more places to fly in Toronto now

I live 10 km away from any airport and 6 KM away from Heliports - I don't understand why I'm still not able to fly my drone.
I live where the Star is on the map. this is so confusing .

5.6 kilometres (3 nautical miles) from any airport listed in the Canada Flight Supplement
1.9 kilometres (1 nautical mile) from heliports or aerodromes used by helicopters only

i think the website is not updated. Just use the UAV app and you should be fine.

Bear in mind it's not 5.9km from the centre of an airport, it's 5.9km from any point of an airport. Additionally you're falling inside Hamilton's control zone, which you're also not allowed to fly inside. That's the light pink bit with the yellow boundary centred on Hamilton airport. So even though you're beyond the 5.9km from the airport, you're still inside it's control zone so yup, no fly.
