    Hi fellow Canadians. I want to apply for my first sfoc but thought I'd see if someone had a good template to use. When I spoke to Transport Canada they basically told me to 'wing it' and make my own. Any help or guidance would be appreciated.

    Ha. I'll admit.....kind of expected this kind of response. Would it help if I said I'd pay for one? Or pay to build one?

    Commercial UAV flights in Canada require a Special Flight Operation Certificate from Transport Canada.

    I've just finished putting together a SFOC application guide and template, but see that your post is from July... still need one?

    Absolutely. I've been drowning in information and what is required and how to present it. It's very hard to get a solid answer even with all the information out there

    So slow on the reply but what you need to do is get the sfoc checklist and literally write it up as the checklist asks. I've had a few done already. To them it is all about safety so if you show that you take it seriously they are willing to work with you.

    Sorry too, slow on my return post. Actually I did not know there was a reply, the forum did notify me. Anyway I have my first SFOC. Now going for my "standing" SFOC.
