    The following link is to the Transport Canada Staff Instruction (SI) No. 623-001,The review and processing of an application for a Special Flight Operations Certificate for the Operation (SFOC) of an Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) System.

    This is what is required to fly an Unmanned Air Vehicle for commercial purposes in Canada. They are basically extending the requirement of a SFOC down to include R/C Aircraft to allow commercial operations. SFOC's are very familiar to almost every Helicopter Pilot and a few of the Seized Wing folks and have been for years. Allthough theses look like they are a pain, once you have a few them in your file and depending on the situation it becomes more of a process than anything.

    Enjoy the read ;)
