Transport Canada has released an Interim Order Respecting the Use of Model Aircraft and is developing new UAV regulations outlined in the Notice of Proposed Amendment (NPA) Unmanned Air Vehicles;
There is a need to regulate airspace for public safety and all commercial UAV activities require regulation;
The definition of Model Aircraft and all privileges associated with recreational model aircraft outlined in CAR 602.45 are proposed to be removed in the new regulations;
The recreational model aircraft community will be negatively impacted by the proposed regulations, effectively criminalizing many activities that have a long safety record; and
Model Aircraft do not pose the same associated risks as commercial UAVs.
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Minister of Transport to consider how the deletion of the definition of Model Aircraft and prescriptive regulation in the NPA UAV affects the varied pursuits of Model Aircraft hobbyists and that the regulations be adjusted to allow recreational Model Aircraft hobbyists to reasonably continue their activities in a safe manner that is not a risk to aviation safety or contrary to other federal and local laws.
