CDP was created for drone pilots by drone pilots. We have spent countless hours crafting our webpage to ensure you get the maximum experience. If your a commercial operator and have a knack for the industry we encourage you to contribute to this forum. In regards to my experience, I am a Ontario based RPAS advanced operator with a background in geomatics. I have been intrigued about the industry well before DJI was even a household name. I have flown fixed wing drones, quadcopters and have a couple hundred hours on several platforms. I have a passion for all things that fly, and planely put I am starstruck. I believe Canada is leading the forefront of this technology, and I applaud Transport Canada for developing a rigid but flexible frame work . We have truly come out on top as a nation, and there’s never a better time to be alive! Go Canada! Go!
Open up and share your background, let’s get talking!

franklinnewhart_1ParticipantHello. I am located in Southern Saskatchewan and came to drone flying by a farmer asking me if I could fly a drone he had purchased and if I could do some work for him. I found out very quickly that I needed a licence and did a crash self study and passed the basic with ease. To note I am a 70 year old kid. This job is fun. What do I do? Well I am working on mapping his property as he leases it out and he needs accurate acerage for rental costing. He also wants to do crop inspection but I am not ready for that as I do not have the equipment yet. He also sells Cattle Oilers and he has had me go out to customers and film the Cattle using the Oilers in the field. This is an ongoing job and I realize I need to get my advanced and I am studying for this right now. I am using his Mavic Air for now but I have purchased a full kit for a Tarot 680 Pro Hexacopter which will be more suited to the mapping and crop inspection. It will also allow me to market myself to other farmers for the same type of work. If all goes well I will be able to afford a multi spectrum camera to do advanced crop inspection. This looks like an emerging field with good income opportunities and it is something a senior can do to suppliment a fixed income.

My name is Tony Fernandez and I am an Electronics Technician.
I have very little aviation experience and attempted the Basic Drone Transport Exams and passed. At the moment I am thinking of buying a simple drone to gain some flying experience.
Tried to join a flying school in Brampton but this is not possible because of the ongoing pandemic.
Guys and Ladies out there the exams are not that difficult. Most of the questions are based on common sense
