Flying fields available
Transport Canada’s new regulations for flying drones mentions that Model Aircraft Association of Canada (MAAC) flying fields are exempt from the new regulations.
There are three MAAC-sanctioned flying fields in our area.
One is in operation by the Prince Edward Aeromodellers Club on Clarke Road near Picton, The Bay of Quinte Aeromodellers located on the Stinson Block Road in Consecon and the Brighton RC Hawks located on County Road 64 on the outskirts of Brighton.
To fly at one of the fields a person must first join MAAC then the individual club. MAAC membership is $90 per year and the local clubs are either $40 or $50 per year.
The Brighton RC Hawks have one flying field dedicated to drone flying. John Ferguson Secretary Brighton RC Hawks
