Unmanned Aerial Vehicle
Luminous Visuals Inc. has just recently acquired staff that are fully capable of piloting UAV’s. We have sent our photographers to complete their training at a UAV Ground School which is officially recognized by Transport Canada. As aerial photographers we also have Radio Operators Certificates which will allow us to communicate with nearby aerodromes, airports and waterdromes as we conduct our operations.
We are currently working towards a general SFOC at this moment but for now we are only able to fly in Class-G airspace. Unfortunately most of Winnipeg is under strict and controlled airspace. Therefore we cannot conduct our operations in certain areas of Winnipeg until we obtain this. So at this moment we are only able to conduct our operations in rural areas as well as cottage country. I’ve added an aeronautical map down below to display which areas would require an SFOC.
Please allow 4-6 weeks for SFOC applications to process for operations conducted in controlled airspace.
- Purple – Class B & C airspace (SFOC Required)
- Green – Class F airspace (SFOC Required)
- Yellow – Aerodrome (SFOC Required)
- Everywhere Else – Glass G airspace (Exemptions for UAV under 1.1kg)
