DJI has welcomed the introduction of new Canadian modernised drone regulations announced earlier this week.
Put forward by Canadian transport minister, Marc Garneau, DJI has said it views the new regulations as ‘a measured approach in ensuring that Canada remains open to safe and responsible use of drones.’
The new laws, set to be implemented on June 1, include new age restrictions for basic and advanced operating, an online exam and altitude restrictions.
Commenting on the new regulation, Brendan Schulman, VP of policy and legal affairs at DJI, said: “The regulatory framework published strikes a sensible balance between protecting public safety and bringing the benefits of drone technology to Canadian businesses and the public at large.”
He added: “The vast majority of drone pilots fly safely and responsibly, and governments, aviation authorities and drone manufacturers agree we need to work together to ensure that all drone pilots know basic safety rules.”
Earlier this week, Commercial Drone Professional reported on the announcement of the news rules for Canada.
