Canada now requires a written exam for RC model aircraft flying
The topics covered on the exam are fairly extensive. Take a look.
I suspect this is where we are headed in the U.S. The FAA has yet to release details of the U.S. exam, which was required by last year’s Congressional vote to re-authorize FAA funding.
Additionally, the FAA has postponed to later this year, a proposal for remote identification of all flying model aircraft.
Important note: If you are not a Canadian resident, such as a U.S. resident making a trip to Canada, if you wish to fly your drone in Canada, you must apply for a Special Flight Operations Certificate before you go to Canada. If you do not comply with the new rules, you may face fines of thousands of dollars.
