As if this is going to make things safer. Same BS as boat licensing and most people after taking the test don’t know jack sh&$ about the laws or regulations. Hopefully lawyers can sue the government as I will if anything happens and it involves a licensed drone operator you better have big insurance coverage.

I’ll be happy to provide my lawyer with a copy of your government issued drone licence qualifications so they will be included in the court docket

The test is not trivial. I thought it would be quite simple and related to drone flying exclusively. It is not. Most of the questions refer to obscure rules and bureucratic minutiae. You are however given plenty of time to google the answers( though some answers are frankly ungooglible). This test seems more like an idiot filter than a real test of drone flying knowledge.  

I first did the test with no research I failed at 60% (you need 65%) the second time I got 80% using google.

That being said here are some tips:
- It always nautical miles
- Its always feet above ground not sea level
- You have to be 14 or older to fly
- You always need to see the drone (VLOS) without special permission
- Keep 5 miles away from thunderstorms
-  Fly below 122 meters (400 feet) in the air
- Fly away from bystanders, at a minimum distance of 30 meters for basic operations
-  Do not fly at the site of emergency operations or advertised events
-  Avoid forest fires, outdoor concerts, and parades
-  Do not fly within 5.6 kilometres (3 nautical miles) from airports or 1.9 kilometres (1 nautical mile) from heliports
-  Fly far away from other aircraft
-  Do not fly anywhere near airplanes, helicopters, and other drones
-  Always respect the privacy of others while flying

Sold my Spark. I ordered a Micro drone 4.0 ... 125 grams. DJI take notice.

You should have kept your Spark

Actually not sure if any of these rules apply to foreigners! I'll get back to you on this one! How does it work in the states for me for example? Do I need to register to FAA?

As far as I understand, they apply to everyone - Canadians and foreigners alike.

Yes but foreigners cannot take the Canadian test ... It's kind of not well organized for them.. sucks.

Why not? I went over the material required. Why can't foreigners study it?

I believe this test is only for Canadian residents, let me know if I'm wrong. Maybe sending an email to the transport canada office would be your best bet. But let me know !

The alternatives are:
- Canadians would have to take a test to fly a drone, while foreigners would be able to fly freely without one.
- Foreigners wouldn't be allowed to fly a drone at all.

Both these alternatives don't make any sense.

People! Please help with the route near Florianopolis. Can we rent a car here https://cars-scanner.co.uk/brazil/florianopolis_hercilio_luz_intl_airport_car_rental.html? There is some free time after the conference, from 4 to 7 days. We want to see nature. But not to fly across the continent to the Amazon or Iguazu. Is there anything interesting there? I am looking on the Internet, but so far everything is not suitable. There are 2 of us, not that much money, and a driver's license. Does it make sense to go to Porto Alegre?
