PR Newswire

TORONTO, Feb. 9, 2018 /PRNewswire/ - Drone Delivery Canada 'DDC or the Company' (TSX.V:FLT  OTC:TAKOF), is pleased to announce that Transport Canada has granted the Company a Compliant UAV Operator Special Flight Operations Certificate (SFOC).

A Compliant 'UAS' (Unmanned Aircraft System) was the first of three regulatory components to the Transport Canada Compliant UAS Operator program, and mandatory for a Compliant UAS Operator SFOC, which the Company obtained and announced in December 2017.

Today, receiving this additional approval represents the balance of the remaining two steps of a methodical process to prove the Company's operational safety practices and our professionalism to Transport Canada. This milestone, achieving a Compliant Operator SFOC, is both essential and necessary for any UAV operator wanting to conduct Beyond Visual Line-of-Sight operations; and for our specific purpose of drone delivery services.

"The Company has been working around the clock to achieve compliant status and is both grateful and appreciative of being recognized as a professional and safe operator of unmanned aircraft (UAS) by Transport Canada. Realizing this milestone enables DDC to continue moving towards becoming a leader in drone delivery services for Canadians by Canadians across our vast geography", commented Mark Wuennenberg, Vice-President of Regulatory Affairs Drone Delivery Canada.

Approval of this certificate is the starting point for the commercialization of drone delivery services in Canada. To this end, DDC intends to work with Transport Canada to trial beyond visual range delivery solutions in remote areas of Canada's north. 

Drone Delivery Canada appreciates the efforts of Transport Canada in creating a favorable environment to grow innovative technology.
