EMERGENCY CONTACT INFORMATION There are several instances outside of normal UAV operations which are of concern to Aviation Safety, as managed by NAVCANADA. While every mission and emergency situation will be different, there are different primary contacts for coordination depending upon the nature of the event. From an Air Traffic Control perspective, different potential threats to aviation safety are identified as follows. Rogue UAV Lateral Fly Away : In a situation where a UAV is operating within 10 nautical miles of Class C, D or E airspace and a loss of control has occurred, or is apparent, and the UAV appears to be travelling horizontally but not climbing, ATC/ATS would suggest from an aviation safety perspective that the primary Emergency contact be the nearest Aerodrome, Flight Service Station, or Tower. The Secondary in this case should be the Flight Information Region (FIR) Area Control Center (ACC) Shift Manager. Prior to UAV operations, understanding the area and classification of airspace in and around your mission area will assist in the proper identification of potentially affected ATC/ATS units. Rogue UAV Vertical Fly Away : In a situation where a UAV is operating within 10 nautical miles of Class C, D or E airspace and a loss of control has occurred, or is apparent, and the UAV appears to be climbing with minimal or no horizontal travel, ATC/ATS would suggest from an aviation safety perspective that the primary Emergency contact be the appropriate FIR ACC Shift Manager . The Secondary in this case should be the nearest 14 | P a g e

Transport Canada Special Flight Operations Certificate (UAV) Application Form – RDIMS-#12337570 Aerodrome, Flight Service Station, or Tower. Prior to UAV operations, understanding the area and classification of airspace in and around your mission area will assist in the proper identification of potentially affected ATC/ATS units. In a situation where a UAV is operating within Glass G airspace only and a loss of control has occurred, or is apparent, ATC/ATS would suggest from an aviation safety perspective that the primary Emergency contact be the appropriate FIR ACC Shift Manager. The Secondary in this case should be the nearest Flight Information Center (FIC). Prior to UAV operations, understanding the area and classification of airspace in and around your mission area will assist in the proper identification of potentially affected ATC/ATS units. In the event of a total loss of control, or otherwise dangerous operational situation, NAV CANADA and Transport Canada expect UAV users to use their best judgement to maintain flight safety. This includes communicating and taking immediate action to mitigate additional risks to the Air Navigation System, and other aviation system users. Follow-up communication and reporting to both NAV CANADA and Transport Canada is mandatory in any of the above instances.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
