CG Drones Inc. received the following communication from DJI Head Office.
DJI representatives are currently in Canada and communicated the following this morning.
In January of this year, Transport Canada issued Advisory Circular AC 922-001 regarding remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) intended for Advanced Operations. Many of you have reached out to us for greater insight into our intended compliance path, and we appreciate your patience as we have worked through this process.
DJI is pleased to declare that, effective today, nine of our drone models comply with the latest Transport Canada regulations for advanced drone operations in controlled airspace. This allows DJI customers to continue using preferred drones in these operations after June 1, when Transport Canada’s new regulatory framework for civilian drone operations takes effect across Canada. DJI’s compliant drones are:
- M600 Series
- M200 Series
- M200 V2 Series
- Inspire 2
- Mavic 2 series
- Mavic Pro
- Mavic Air
- Phantom 4 series
DJI continues to review the process of declaring its drones compliant for other Advanced Operations under Transport Canada’s safety assurance program. These elements of the program have different steps and requirements, and further information will be announced at a later date.
Thanks and best regards,
For CG Drones, much of our RPAS fleet is DJI product. We continue to find them a reliable solution for our services. When the new Transport Canada regulations come into effect on June 1st, this will mean that business continues. We look forward to further updates from DJI and our continued partnership.
