BVLOS (Beyond Visual Line of Sight) 2019 - 2021

Free ROI Analysis For Qualified Companies

The Canadian Drone Institutes Advisory Board has over 30 years of financial analysis experience in regard to introducing “The Cost of Change Concept” into the manned aviation operating environment.

Let us provide a free case analysis with ROI saving for introducing the right Remotely Piloted Aircraft System and software designed for your data set collection versus your current operational methodology.

BVLOS (Beyond Visual Line of Sight)


Please note that the “RoadMap” to applying for BVLOS operations has not been officially released by Transport Canada. The Canadian Drone Institutes consulting program will ensure you do not invest in a compliant training company that cannot take you into the future of BVLOS operations in Canada.

The future of the Drone industry in North America is in what is called BVLOS Operations - Beyond Visual Line of Sight. Greg Davis in 2016, founded The Canadian Drone Institute. Greg is a retired Transport Canada and FAA Senior Commercial Pilot with a Commercial Pilot Instructors Class 2 license and a Class 1 IFR - Instrument Flight Rules rating. 

Our Advisory Board is composed of retired Instructors with Transport Canada and Canadian Armed Forces designated pilots. Our Instructors have the combined pilot in command flight experience of over 13,000 flight hours in IFR conditions, the manned aviation equivalent of flying in BVLOS.

Greg 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 approved commercial Drones will fully integrate into Canadian controlled airspace alongside Commercial operators such as Air Canada, Porter and Westjet.

Transport Canada intends to approve routine Beyond Visual Line-of-Sight (BVLOS) operations for Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) in 2019, beginning with lower risk operations. The department 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 adapt 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 in order to enable lower risk BVLOS operations, and allow VLOS operations over 25 kilograms outside of populated areas.

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

This will  ensure confidentiality for your data collection and reduce your liability for fines up to $25,000.00 plus possible prison sentence for airspace violations under the new Transport Canada regulations, effective June 01, 2019.

Reducing your dependence on 3rd party Drone operators is not only a good financial decision it also allows your drone Team flexibility in operations and exposure to 3rd party operators pilots who will not have the qualifications to operate in BVLOS conditions in Canadas harsh winter conditions.

 Flight Operations and Maintenance Collaboration


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

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

This is a link to Commercial Drones that are approved by Transport Canada. Higher end Drones should be viewed as BVLOS possibilities for corporations intending to do 30-50 kilometre and beyond operations to and from your launch area 

The Canadian Drone Institute will write Maintenance Manuals for each Drone, Journey Log Books, Standard Operating Procedures, Pilots Log Books and more. These are written to Transport Canada specifications and are updated for compliance to changes in The Canadian Aviation Regulations for your flight department.

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