New Rules in effect for Drones June 1 2019. Compass is fully equipped for all your UAV/drone needs – our current inventory contains 1 fixed wing and 25 rotary UAVS. Compass employs 5 pilots who operate under a special flight operations certificate (SFOC). With permission this allows us to operate within controlled airspace (close to airports, towns, etc). The remainder of our crews are all trained to use rotary UAVs in uncontrolled airspace throughout the province. Come June 1st all UAV’s will be registered with Transport Canada and all pilots will undertake the appropriate exam and review by flight reviewer.
