Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) / Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)

Southport periodically offers UAS Ground School Training provided by M3 Aerial Productions. Visit their website for upcoming training sessions near you. 

Tips for Recreational RPAS/UAS Users:

  • Fly your RPAS during daylight and in good weather.
  • Keep your RPAS where you can see it with your own eyes – not through an on-board camera, monitor or smartphone.
  • Make sure your RPAS is safe for flight before take-off. Ask yourself, for example: Are the batteries fully charged? Is it too cold to fly?
  • Respect the privacy of others. Avoid flying over private property or taking photos or videos without permission.
  • Avoid ‘No Fly Zones’ as outlined in the new regulations by Transport Canada.
