New Canadian Drone Regulations – Impact on MAAC

As the new regulations that will come into affect June 1 2019 impacts all model aircraft, not just “drones”, there have been concerns raised by many “traditional” recreational flyers in regards to how this impacts Model Aeronautics Association Of Canada (MAAC) members, fields, and events.

As per the new regulations outlined in CG2:

While Part IX of the CARs applies to all RPAS, members of the Model Aeronautics Association of Canada (MAAC) operating at MAAC fields and MAAC sanctioned events will be issued an exemption to certain provisions of the CARs. Under the Act,77 the Minister has the authority to issue exemptions to the CARs; the exemption will be issued to MAAC before the end of the coming into force of the Regulations.
