The Transport Canada SFOC Application

Under current Canadian regulations, any non-recreational use of a Drone (UAV) is required to hold a Special Flight Operation Certificate (SFOC)

Developing your SFOC application and all the associated 23 technical documents and standard operating procedures can be quite a daunting task for those new to the aviation industry. The Canadian Drone Institute offers full manuals support for your SFOC application and we guarantee that we will help you get your SFOC application approved by Transport Canada .

Your SFOC Operations Manual, Technical Manuals, UAV Manual, Battery Log, SOP, Safety Manuals etc., will all be completed for you during your SFOC application process for Transport Canada.

Currently Transport Canada wants to see on your initial SFOC application 3 Complex Site Specific flights. After you have completed these flights, we will then help you file for your Complex Standing SFOC.This will be valid currently for 1 year from the date of issue.

The Canadian Drone Institute Instructors will take you or your company through a series of 10 extensive knowledge based modules to prepare you for the Transport Canada 2018 exam.

The Canadian Drone Institute has developed two additional study sections; NavCanada and Airport/Aerodrome procedures. These sections are in addition to the 8 sections currently required by Transport Canada. The additional sections will help you prepare for the Transport Canada exam.

When the new Transport Canada 2018 regulations come into effect in The Canadian GazetteII, the SFOC will be supplemented by an examination and a flight test showing your proficiency as a UAV pilot.
