Deveron receives approval to operate drones throughout Canada


In Canada, Deveron is approved as a Compliant Operator under its Special Flight Operations Certificate for the operation of small unmanned airborne vehicle systems within visual line-of-sight. The certificate is valid for aerial data collection and surveying throughout Canada, and meets the highest level of approvals under Transport Canada’s regulatory environment related to UAV activities.

Norm Lamothe, Deveron’s Head of UAS Agriculture said, “Our focus is to grow a standardized network of drones to enable scalable data collection at the enterprise level in agriculture. Being one of the first nationally compliant operators in Canada is a huge achievement for us and we look forward to continuing to provide commercial feedback in safely operating a national drone data service company. Additionally, we couldn’t be more thrilled to achieve compliance with the senseFly platform and are excited about continuing to bring their global leadership in the drone space directly to our customers.”
