The World Economic Forum defines Emerging Technologies as “technologies which arise from new knowledge, or the innovative application of existing knowledge.” These technologies, including unmanned aerial vehicles (drones), robotics, artificial intelligence, and automation, have the potential to radically change current industries and create entirely new ones.
Transport Canada Civil Aviation, Canada’s national aviation authority, has passed a series of regulations restricting the use of drones. While the recreational operation of drones is legal, some limitations include where and in what capacity they can be flown. If you want to pilot commercial drones, you must now obtain a Special Flight Operations Certificate from Transport Canada Civil Aviation.
