Canadian Rally Championship

July 2014 President's Update

Presidents Update - July 2014

This summer has been extremely busy for me with events in the US and Canada. Early in July I competed in the Ontario Regional Black Bear Rally with Will Hudson in his Team O’Neil supported R2 Fiesta, then the following weekend I was in New Hampshire and Maine doing the NEFR in another R2 Fiesta. Conducting CARS board meetings from my hotel room and writing minutes on my Ipad makes for a tough slog, so hopefully you can excuse me for being a little late with my quarterly update.

Announcement 2014-04

Announcement 2014-04
Subject: Radio Controlled Aircrafts
Issue Date: June 2, 2014

Use of Radio Controlled Aircraft, UAV’s, or Drones at CARS sanctioned events


In recent years we have seen an increase in the use of cameras mounted on Radio Controlled Aircraft, UAV’s or Drones as a method for capturing aerial footage of the event.

With some recent incidents involving these aircraft, the club and event insurance underwriters have advised ASN Canada FIA that Radio Controlled Aircraft, UAV’s or Drones, fall under the aircraft exclusion of the coverage for clubs and events and as such incidents involving these aircraft are not covered.

Because of this, ASN Canada FIA is recommending event organizers not allow any Radio Controlled Aircraft, UAV or Drone to fly, unless they meet Transport Canada regulations and the operator provides proof of insurance.
