Canadian Cargo Drone Gains Transport Canada Compliance

X1000 Sparro Cargo Drone Has Demonstrated A 'History Of Safe Operation'

Drone Delivery Canada (DDC) has announced that Transport Canada has accepted its Declaration of Compliance for the X1000 Sparrow cargo delivery UAS, which makes the UAS compliant with the Transport Canada UAS standard.

The Sparrow UAS, which has demonstrated a “history of safe operation in some of the harshest environmental conditions in Canada’s north” during recent research and development flights according to DDC, is the first cargo delivery UAS of its kind to be accepted under the Transport Canada, Compliant UAS program.

“Achieving Compliant UAV Status is the first of three very critical steps in DDC achieving its Compliant Operator Status Certificate. We anticipate obtaining the balance of the approvals in early Q1 2018,” said DDC’s CEO, Tony Di Benedetto.

“We are very thankful to the efforts of the Canadian Government and Transport Canada in creating a favorable environment to grow innovative technology and position Canada as a leader in commercial drone delivery technology on a global scale.”

A Compliant UAS is the first of three regulatory components to the Transport Canada Compliant UAS Operator program, and is required for a Compliant UAS Operator Special Flight Operations Certificate (SFOC).

With this achievement, DDC can move forward in the process of becoming a Compliant UAS Operator, “with the anticipation for the balance of the other two of three approvals in early Q1, 2018.” DDC has submitted the required documentation for the next steps in the process, and is confident that it will be approved in the remaining steps.

Achieving Compliant UAS Operator status is also the first requirement for being allowed to conduct Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) operations.
