Who Can Fly

If you are going to fly a drone over 250 grams (g), you must have a valid drone pilot certificate and only fly drones that are marked and registered. If you are flying a drone that is less than 250g, you do not need to register the drone or get a drone pilot certificate.

Drone pilots must carry a valid drone pilot certificate at all times while operating their drone. A valid drone pilot certificate is a printed or electronic document issued by TC. No other form of certification will be accepted.

You need to be 14 years old to get a Basic Certificate and 16 years old to get an Advanced Certificate. Children younger than 14 must be supervised by someone with a drone pilot Certificate. This also applies to clubs, camps and other youth groups.
