There are really no legit places to fly a drone anymore, with the exception of the backcountry. These new rules went in about a month ago. Even in the backcountry there will be "animals" so not ok by the rules.

I really enjoyed flying in parks, of course away from people, but that has been taken away now as well.

Do not fly your drone:

  • higher than 90 m above the ground
  • closer than 75 m from buildings, vehicles, vessels, animals, people/crowds
  • closer than nine km from the centre of an aerodrome (any airport, heliport, seaplane base or anywhere that aircraft take-off and land)
  • within controlled or restricted airspace
  • within nine km of a forest fire
  • where it could interfere with police or first responders
  • at night or in clouds
  • if you canít keep it in sight at all times
  • if you are not within 500 m of your drone
  • if your name, address, and telephone number are not clearly marked on your drone.
