    I am applying for the SOFC in Canada and was wondering who here has one? Might need some help filling out the paperwork...

    Submitted almost 2 months ago, just got asked to fill out more forms with exactly the same information I already sent and expect to wait another 20 days. No wonder people don't follow the rules set out by TC

    Crazy. Did they ask you to fill out the SOFC for a different class?

    Yes, There are no forms on their site.
    They have a suggested table of contents. I used an example I found used by MAAC.
    They have now send me a word document which I need to send in for approval for each and every time I fly a commercial mission.
    So a real estate agent says can you shot this estate for me tomorrow, I have to say I have to send this form into TC for approval first which I'm not sure how quick I can get approval. What do you think the agent will say!!

    In most cases, even for commercial use, as long as you have liability insurance, an SFOC is not required, just an exemption.
    This is because the Phantom 3 Pro weights less than 2kg
