With over 100 years of combined traditional aviation experience, the Altohelix team is able to provide a full turn-key solution for your SFOC application. With our teams vast experience in the aviation industry we are able to provide solutions for simple and highly complex applications. To obtain an SFOC, drone operators must apply to Transport Canada and complete a specific Operational Risk Assessment (SORA) for their proposed operation. Transport Canada(TC) reviews the application to ensure it complies with safety standards and regulatory requirements. TC has divided the SFOC application process into two different categories; lower-risk environments and higher-risk environments. Altohelix is able to provide assistance with your SORA plus operational manual, safety management system, documentation review before submission and third party reviews.
