In the first 4 months of 2015 Transport Canada issued 1,600 permits for commercial drones. In contrast, the U.S.’s Federal Aviation Administration issued only 69. Over 110 companies in Canada now provide commercial drone services, which are regularly used by the movie and television industry, oil and gas companies, forestry companies and farmers.
Not for delivery of fast food to lazy people. But for research in places that are hard to reach and for safety in search and rescue situations on ski hills and in wilderness areas and the like, drones could be a real good option.
Yes. But take it slow and easy. I think the argument that drone usefulness to commercial interest is evident, and regulating it would seem the sensible thing to do. This technology would have to be worked into the existing flight management systems currently employed, strict safety and failsafe requirements would also have to be reviewed and implemented first. National and civilian security must always remain a priority when considering these kinds of technological advancements.
if it is registered into the system and has no other dangers to people and their privacy, we still must make sure that these drones aren't tampered with. So, with daily to weekly maintenance, we should slowly allow this.
