      Hi Pablo,

      Have you tried our online compliance course? It is the easiest way to get started with our regulatory courses and covers pretty much everything. If you need more in-depth training, feel free to contact us by email and we’ll set something up at info@canadianuavs.ca.

        Sounds like something I want to do. Does a doctor have to sign the medical examination form 26-0297E (1308-07) even in cases where the answer to all questions is negative (meaning if none of the medical conditions apply)?

          Hi Pablo,

          Yes, your family Doctor has to sign the form regardless of your answers. This is a requirement by transport Canada.
