Transport Canada shares Facts About Canadian Drones and RPAS Certification in 2023

In February 2023, Transport Canada released a newsletter on Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS), which included interesting statics on the number of registered drones and issued pilots certificates. As there is an increase in the popularity and relevance of drones for pleasure and work, registering your drone and getting a pilot certification will increase your credibility among other things, opening doors to potential careers and opportunities.

These statistics are shown below. 

Transport Canada has issued:

  • Registered Drones: 74,906
  • Basic Pilot Certificates issued: 79,721
  • Advanced Pilot Certificates issued: 9,416

Drones, UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), and remotely piloted aerial systems need minimal time, effort, and money to allow us to gather important data by reaching hard-to-access places and covering difficult or dangerous terrain.
