    Canada Class D (SFC - 3000ft AGL) flight

    Hi, A question for you as I can't seem to find the answer anywhere. Is it possible to fly a UAV (less than 1kg) commercially (pilot certified) under the SFOC exemption in a Class D airspace (SFC - 3000ft). I read somewhere that you could fly under 30m in those area but can't find it anymore...

    400 Feet Limit Bypass?

    So recently I have heard that drone users are allowed to fly over 400 feet AGL if they are flying within 400 feet of a large structure. (Ex. A user can fly 400 feet over a 300-foot water tower for a total AGL measurement of 700). I was wondering two things: 1) Is this information true? 2) If...

    Unauthorised commercial use

    Fairly sure I'm safe here, but it's an interesting situation. I am not commercially licensed, and do not take photos/video with the intent that they be used commercially.

    Hey guys! In September/Oktober I’m going on a trip, visiting Thailand but also Laos and Vietnam. I’ve checked the rules for flying in Laos and Vietnam and that doesn’t worry me at all. But I still need to bring my Mavic Air and I’m worried bringing it with me in Thailand without any...

    If in the US, have you read Sec 336?

    I wonder how much time the average Mavic owners spent reading on line and watching videos about this cool machine before they purchased. I also wonder how much time the same people spent researching the laws that apply to us as hobbyist Mavic pilots. I am astounded by the number of posts...

    Returning from Ecuador and the Galapagos with my Mavic

    I've just returned from my trip to Ecuador. We flew into Quito and then on to Puerto Ayora to catch the Celebrity Cruise Ship Xploration, a 90' Catamaran with 8 staterooms. I did a lot of research about bringing my Mavic into Ecuador and was worried I'd be extorted for a large import fee...

    I am looking for reliable, complete, and up-to-date information on drone regulations in Germany, as well as practical advice on flying there. There are several web pages and forum posts on this topic, but most seem incomplete, or they do not fully agree with each other. I do not speak German...

    THE RULES!!

    I am a newbie here, and I have been diligently searching for a good explanation of the rules. I see a lot of questionable videos with comments from people as to the legality of the operation. They all state what the rules are, or are not. Often vehemently. But many times they contradict each...

    Laws Flying in Fuerteventura (Canary Islands)

    I'm off to Fuerteventura next week and would like to use my Mavic... Anybody know where I can see the laws/ rules for flying there? I know it's part of Spain and they have pretty tight laws against drones but I don't know what the rules would be on an island off of the main land.
