Our Process

Very few clients or prospective customers realize what is involved in today’s world of flying a UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle / or Drone) for video and photo shoots. So, please have a quick read of the bullet points below, educate yourself, so that when we talk, you’ll be aware of the law: the rules and regulations that we are bound to with Transport Canada:

  • Our business // We capture high definition photos and create/edit HD video for customers who want incredible images of their cottages, homes or business. In special cases, we can shoot sporting activities such as wakeboarding, skiing, boating, or kite flying. We also legally license music tracks to accent video, where applicable. Flying a UAV (drone) for any business or promotional use requires special certification with Transport Canada. It is the LAW.
  • Certified and Insured // North45 Communications Inc. (MuskokaDrone) is certified by Transport Canada to fly for business and promotional purposes. Our certification is the highest available in Ontario for the Drone we fly: ‘Standing Complex Restricted SFOC’. We were the first company in Ontario to receive this designation. North45 is insured for liability except for shoots which require ‘actors’, where liability is waived in writing.
  • Proximity by law // there are many ‘conditions’ to fly. We are only allowed to fly to within a certain proximity (100 feet) of people, cars, boats, buildings, etc. except where liability is waved by clients and participants. We offer legal ‘sign off’ documents in these cases. We can be fined for breaking this law.
  • Equipment // you will be surprised to learn that we include a transceiver, to in certain circumstances, communicate with airports and pilots (in emergency). Where airports or aerodromes are involved, we communicate with London Airport. When required, a ‘NOTAM’ is filed to communicate with planes flying in the area. We carry a medical kit, a fire extinguisher, several specialized batteries, a tripod for gopro if needed, camera monitor, and a host of specialized items to do our work. It’s FUN, but it’s very involved, and is a serious business.
  • Experience // our team is certified and insured to do the work we do. We have many hours of training, and client flight time with the DJI Phantoms that we fly. In addition, we previously completed and received our ‘Private Pilot License Ground School’ Certificates.
  • In short, we know our parameters, what is safe and what is involved to generate a great and affordable visual experience for you, your family, or your business.
