    Guess they got their SFOC (special flight operations certificate) from Transport Canada. Takes a while in most cases to get it, but if your flying for cash you will need it.

    I wasn't all that impressed with the video they shot - not really a lot to look at I suppose considering the phase of that construction project.

    Maybe it was the operator that wasn't all that skilled - my opinion only - not meant to be critical.

    Yeah, I agree. That little bit of actual footage didn't show hardly anything of the new bridge, and non of the new Daryl Katz Rexall Cathedral, I mean Ice Palace. ;-)

    What ever took three months to get permission to fly over and record seems lame. There must be much more footage to see.
