When Moment Factory and AMPme organized the light show on the Jacques Cartier bridge for Montreal’s 375th anniversary, commercial drone pilot Antoine Léger was allowed to film it all. “I felt very privileged to be part of the team by filming and lending out very beautiful images,” says Léger, who was involved from the very beginning. This once in a lifetime opportunity came as a result of his standing specialized flight operations certification. Ledger was able to practice and perfect his flight plans for the big day without a need to apply for a lengthy flight approval each time. There are many misconceptions about what a standing specialized flight operations certification is and who qualifies for it. The confusion is understandable, as recreational SFOCs were implemented only a couple of months ago. As a result, both old and new drone pilots unknowingly limit themselves.
