Does anyone have a suggestion or recommendation for a drone flight school in town or close by?  Considering using one as a scout off the boat.

There are quite a few online courses in Canada, but I'm pretty sure this is the only bricks'n'mortar, sit-down classroom one in town.

Thanks for the tip.  Sounds like the kind of ground school I am looking for.

Give gov time, they will put so much ridiculous regulation on this that like Uber & Mary Jane sales, it will experience a crash landing. (Que courier, taxi lobby groups) Drug delivery by drone: Medication flown to Salt Spring Island in first-ever Canadian trial

Drug delivery by drone?

No, it’s not the latest strategy from 21st-century drug dealers but, rather, the possible future for Canadians who live in remote areas and require medication.

Earlier this month, Canada Post, London Drugs and InDro Robotics successfully flew pharmaceuticals by drone from Vancouver Island to multiple locations on Salt Spring Island as a part of a test program.

The trial — in which the drugs were flown six kilometres over the Pacific Ocean in 11 minutes from Duncan on Vancouver Island to Salt Spring Island — is the first time medication has been delivered beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) by drone in Canada, according to the companies involved.

The B.C. trials, which took place Aug. 19, saw drones loaded with an Epi-Pen and naloxone launched from a mobile London Drugs pharmacy and delivered to the Country Grocer on Salt Spring Island as well as directly to a patient’s home on the island.  https://globalnews.c...QvmJqpT8CIR_LoI
