Unmanned Systems Canada — Systèmes Télécommandés Canada (USC-STC) recognized global remotely piloted aircraft system (RPAS) leader DJI with one of its most prestigious honours.
The Organizational Award recognizes a group or organization for its outstanding contribution to the growth of the industry. There can be no denying DJI, recognized as the world’s global leader in drones, is deserving.
This award pays particular tribute to the significant efforts undertaken by DJI to meet the new technical compliance requirements set out in 2019 by Transport Canada. In so doing, DJI sent a resoundingly positive signal to its existing customer base.
Through diligent and sustained efforts, DJI ensured commercial operators flying DJI products in Canada would not have their assets stranded and that they could rely on DJI to further grow their businesses. As importantly, all stakeholders – including the public – were assured that DJI’s products were meeting regulatory standards for safety.
As DJI’s impressive products continue to evolve, there can be no doubt of the future benefit to professionals, recreational users, and Canada’s economy.
“Many of our members earn their livings capturing data and imagery with DJI’s enterprise and high-end consumer products,” said USC-STC chair Michael Cohen. “We are proud to recognize DJI with the Organizational Award for the quiet but sustained work it carried out to ensure that operators could continue to use its excellent products as Canada’s regulatory scheme evolved.”
