    I have applied for and received several SFOCs from Transport Canada. I have also now received my standing SFOC, which allows me to fly anywhere in Ontario and which I applied for after having established an accident-free pattern. You have to make sure that you do everything right or they will not approve you. The certificates are a bit of a pain in the butt as they can take up to 20 days to receive. The standing SFOC took almost 2 months. Just make sure you include the following. Date of operation, exact location (lat/long), equipment, your rules and responsibilities, emergency procedures, safety procedures... One thing you have to do is explain to them what you intend to do if you encounter a vertical flyaway, and they horizontal flyaway. Specifically, they want to know the name of the person you were going to contact and their phone number - which is unpublished - and that you received it from the Canada flight supplement. I am told that they will have a standard application for available in late October.
