BVLOS (Beyond Visual Line of Sight) 2022

The Canadian Drone Institutes consulting program will ensure you do not invest in a compliant training company today that cannot take you into the future of BVLOS operations in Canada in 2022 forward.

The future of the Drone industry in North America is in what is called BVLOS Operations (Beyond Visual Line of Sight).

Our Advisory Board is composed of current and retired flight Instructors with Transport Canada and the Canadian Armed Forces. Our Instructors have the combined pilot in command flight experience of over 19,000 flight hours in IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) conditions, the RPAS or Drone equivalent of flying in BVLOS.

Greg Davis, the Founder of The Canadian Drone Institute currently has the privilege of being on the RPAS Task Force Committee in Ottawa called RTMAT. The RTMAT committees mandate is to recommend how Transport Canada will approve commercial Drone operators to fully integrate into Canadian controlled airspace alongside Commercial operators such as Air Canada, Porter and Westjet.

Transport Canada intends to approve risk assessment in Beyond Visual Line-of-Sight (BVLOS) operations for Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) in late 2021, beginning with lower risk operations. Transport Canada is considering leveraging the Specific Operational Risk Assessment (SORA) process by the Joint Authorities for Rulemaking of Unmanned Systems (JARUS) to serve as the basis for the methodology to approve routine operations.

For operations that fall outside of the Part IX regulatory requirements, the department intends to adopt the SORA concepts to create a methodology that recognizes Canada’s unique airspace environment and low population densities in Canada’s remote and rural regions. This will enable lower risk BVLOS operations, and allow BVLOS operations over 25 kilograms outside of populated areas under a SFOC.

The Canadian Drone Institute has created a Corporate Training and Consulting Department for companies who would like to set up their own Advanced Drone flight department.

Reduce your dependence on 3rd party Drone operators is not only a good financial decision, it also allows your drone Team flexibility in operations and securing the exposure of your confidential data

The Canadian Drone Institutes Flight Department set up program includes consultation support over the years as new Regulations and changes to existing regulations come into effect.


Training At Any Location in Canada

Do you want to have to retrain your team for BVLOS or would you like to have a curriculum written by experts who have aviation operational experience flying under IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) the equivalent to Beyond Visual Line of Sight for Drones.

Our Transport Canada Commercial Aviation Instructors and Transport Canada Commercial Pilot Team has written the most comprehensive Advanced curriculum available today in Canada.

The Canadian Drone Institute is an Academic Transport Canada compliant training school only. That is all our Team does. The Canadian Drone Institute trains for Transport Canada compliance and safety.

Our Courses not only cover the new Transport Canada June 01, 2019 Advanced Course requirements, we will set your company up to move into the next phase of drone operations in Canada. The new BVLOS regulations that are being road mapped right now by Transport Canada are for your entry into Beyond Visual line of Site in 2022 forward.

The Canadian Drone Institute will develop a complete ongoing training program for your drone pilots and operational support team to account for and have a backup of trained pilots for turn over and emergency operations if necessary.

Our on staff AME’s (Transport Canada Licensed Aircraft Maintenance Engineers) will build the Transport Canada Manuals that will be needed for the future of operating a commercial Drone flight department under the regulations for BVLOS in Canada.

The Canadian Drone Institute will write Maintenance Manuals for each model of Drone, Journey Log Books, Standard Operating Procedures, Pilots Log Books and more.

These will be written to the Transport Canada specifications and are updated for compliance to changes in The Canadian Aviation Regulations for your flight department.

You will receive updates to VLOS and BVLOS regulations for all of your manuals and training materials for current and new staff entering into your flight department.

We want to partner with your company for Safety and Compliance to the new BVLOS regulatory requirements so your company can concentrate on flying your Drone(s) to gather data whether it be Lidar, Photogrammetry, Thermal imaging etc.
