Great news for Canadian users of senseFly UAV solutions. \u00a0Transport Canada adds eBee Plus, eBee SQ and albris to list of compliant systems Read the following press release: Transport Canada adds multiple senseFly drones to list of compliant systems Canadian eBee Plus, eBee SQ and albris drone users are now significantly closer to achieving \u2018Compliant Operator\u2019 status \u00a0 Cheseaux, Switzerland (August 23, 2017) \u2013 senseFly\u2019s eBee Plus, eBee SQ and albris drones have been added to Transport Canada\u2019s list of \u201cCompliant Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)\u201d, a distinction that allows Canadian organisations using senseFly drones to apply for Compliant Operator status. The new designation, held by only a few drone producers, mirrors that of senseFly\u2019s original eBee drone, which became Canada\u2019s first compliant fixed-wing drone in 2015. In Canada, companies that employ drones for civilian applications must have a Special Flight Operations Certificate (SFOC), unless qualifying for an exemption. If an organisation has a SFOC and is granted Compliant Operator status, it gains the additional benefit of: \tGreater geographical flexibility, including Canada-wide \tA longer SFOC validity period of up to three years \tStreamlined SFOC renewals \tPriority placement in the SFOC application queue Currently, senseFly is the only company offering compliant fixed-wing drones. \u201cCanadian operators using senseFly products can now work towards their full compliant operation status,\u201d explained Felix Weber, CEO at Ag Business & Crop\/UKKO, a senseFly Canadian distribution partner. \u201cCompliance means applications are streamlined and can be used nationwide. Our business supports this effort through our FlySmart UAV Compliant Ground School Training program with a commercial flight instructor.\u201c Transport Canada, the governmental department responsible for transportation policies and programs, promotes safe, secure, efficient and environmentally responsible transportation. \u201csenseFly\u2019s full line of solutions now officially meet Transport Canada\u2019s standards of safety and efficiency, meaning we will be able to help even more Canadian operators boost their business,\u201d said Jean-Christophe Zufferey, CEO at senseFly. \u201cWe\u2019re proud of this achievement and enthusiastic about what\u2019s ahead.\u201d "This is another defining development from senseFly and its complete commitment to forwarding the development of safe, responsible and accountable UAV platforms and operations for professionals in Canada,\u201d added Peter Willis, UAV Technical Sales Representative at Spatial Technologies, a senseFly Canadian distribution partner. \u201cA truly legitimate benefit and advantage for existing professional operators and future users alike."
