so...no more unprofessional flyers
because once you're licensed, you're a professional?

I guess everyone with a driver license is a safe & responsible driver right?

Well I mean the Basic exam is pretty easy, it just makes sure you have an understanding of where you can fly and what to do when flying and where you can't fly.

The Advanced requires a good knowledge of TC and Nav Can regulations and rules, requires a flight exam, and your ROC-A.

To me its pretty reasonable. We ask drivers, and pleasure craft to get licensed.

I have this drone. I never flew it because I don't know where I can fly it safely.

Fees are $5 to register your drone (required), $10 to take the basic exam. Fines up to $1000 for failure to do either.

I couldn't legally fly it even on my own property because it's within 5.6km of the YVR airport boundary. In addition, drones are banned in all city parks and school grounds. This map kind of makes it clear that there is no market for drones > 250g in the Vancouver area, something I wasn't fully aware of until I read this thread, so thanks OP and posters.

This thread is dead, wrt the drone.

lock it.

3units nationwide, but since they don't show up, it means they're not really there. as per 2 people I just called and spoke to.

Just want to save everybody the grief & the annoyance of store employees replying to useless enquiries.

Except pleasure craft licence is a joke.

I’ll buy it off you for the staples price :p
There are maps that show you where you can fly. But the DJI GO app also warns you.

you have no ideas how a report of stolen credit card (...) affect your credit. Happened twice in your history, that bank won't issue a credit card for you
