DJI has confirmed that nine of its drone models comply with the latest Transport Canada regulations for advanced drone operations in controlled airspace.
It means DJI customers can continue to use their drones in these operations after June 1, when Transport Canada’s new regulatory framework takes effect.
Commenting on the changes David Hansell, public policy manager at DJI said: “Transport Canada wants to ensure that drones operated in advanced missions are high-quality, reliable products. While DJI drones meet our own high quality assurance requirements, we have spent the last few months diligently reviewing our documentation, safety standards and administrative processes to ensure they comply with Transport Canada’s new requirements.”
He added: “We can now declare official compliance with those requirements, allowing our customers to use our drones in controlled airspace without interruption.”
The organisation announced its new regulatory framework for certain types of advanced civilian drone operations in January, requiring the use of drones whose manufacturer has declared compliance with reliability and operational characteristics under a safety assurance framework.
DJI’s compliant drones are the M600 Series, M200 Series, M200 V2 Series, Inspire 2, Mavic 2 series, Mavic Pro, Mavic Air, Phantom 4 series and Spark.
