    Flying laws

    Hi everyone, I知 new to RC planes, was thinking of purchasing an Aeroscout to fly at my buddies farm. I知 now having second thoughts, after trying to dissect Transport Canada痴 rules on flying model planes/drones. I値l be honest, the read was a bit confusing, but am I correct in that unless I joined a club, I would have to register my plane?

    Each plane must be registered and you must have a licence. On-line test for $10 to get a licence. You only need to know Part 9 CARS. Don't worry about the rest of it.

    Wow, hard to believe, but I guess it's in case you damage property or hurt someone, they will know who it is.
    Do I find this test on the Gov't website?
    Is there a study guide? Or is it common sense questions?
    Is it the same as a drone test?
    Sorry for all the questions lol

    CARS, Canadian Air Regs, now governs anything in the air. If there is a pilot on board, CARS except Part 9. No pilot on board is Part 9 for RPAS, Remote Piloted Aircraft System. That includes drones and anything RC.
    MAAC has an exemption to Part 9 for all members in good standing flying at MAAC sanctioned fields and events.
    Go to the MAAC wesite to find answers for all your other questions.

    Re: Flying laws

    Hi again, so I been reading a lot, and wow, it seems that just like firearm laws, the Gov't has made people jump through all these hoops to just discourage people from getting into this hobby. Maybe Ive read to much and complicated things lol but that's what I see.

    So if I read this correctly, after taking the test, I will later have to take a refresher course??? As stated in 921.04 Recency Requirements of the regulations ???? Though I do not see when this would have to be done.


    "921.04 Recency Requirements
    (1) For the purposes of subparagraphs 901.56(1)(b)(iii) and 901.65(1)(b)(iii) of the CARs, any of the following are considered acceptable as recurrent training activities:
    (a) attendance at a safety seminar endorsed by Transport Canada Aviation;
    (b) completion of an RPAS recurrent training program designed to update pilot knowledge, which includes, human factors, environmental factors, route planning, operations near aerodromes/airports, and applicable regulations, rules and procedures; or
    (c) completion of a Transport Canada endorsed self-paced study program, which is designed to update pilot knowledge in the subjects specified in paragraph (b)."

    Re: Flying laws

    I highly recommend that you join MAAC. As a MAAC member, you are exempt from the Transport Canada rules regarding RPAS operation. See this FAQ for more info: https://www.maac.ca/en/transport_canada_faq.php

    As mentioned in the FAQ, as a MAAC member you can fly from your friends farm without having to get a Transport Canada "license" and without having to join a MAAC sanctioned club. The only stipulation is that you follow the MAAC safety guidelines which can be found here: https://www.maac.ca/en/documents.php, under "Advisory Group - Safety".

    Regards,
    ...jim
