Restricted, Danger and Military Operations Advisory Airspace
Commercial and recreational UAS pilots: On the Skyward Airspace Map, Class F airspace which is either Restricted Airspace CY(R), Danger Airspace CY(D), or Advisory Airspace for Military Operations CY(A) in Canada is shown in red. UAV flights are not allowed in these areas without permission when they are activated. Commercial drone operators must obtain a Special Flight Operations Certificate (SFOC) to operate in active Class F airspace. Recreational drone operators may not operate in danger, restricted or military operations advisory Class F airspace. For detailed information see the Transport Canada UAV website.
Remember: When the airspace is activated and appears red, UAS operations aren’t allowed without explicit permission from the proper airspace authority.

For experienced aviators: Some types of Class F airspace aren’t restricted at all times. Instead, they are activated on a fixed schedule or activated by a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM).
Use the name of the Class F airspace (e.g., CYR409) to find the area in the Transport Canada Designated Airspace Handbook. Time of Designation will tell you If the restricted area is activated continuously, by schedule or by a NOTAM.
Before scheduling an operation within Class F airspace, check the schedule and check for a NOTAM
It may be possible to get permission to fly within a red area from the using or controlling agency. The name of the using and controlling agency can be found in the Transport Canada Designated Airspace Handbook.
Do not fly within red airspace without permission.
Commercial and recreational UAS pilots: On the Skyward Airspace Map, Class F airspace which is Advisory Airspace in Canada which is not designated for military operations is shown in yellow. Advisory Airspace indicates that there may be concentrations of activity which is potentially hazardous to aircraft such as flight training or hang gliding.

Use the name of the Class F airspace (e.g., CYD737) to find the area in the Transport Canada Designated Airspace Handbook (DAH). More detail about a specific area is available in the DAH.
Avoid flying within any advisory area without checking the details in the Canada Designated Airspace Handbook. Do not operate a UAS within a Military Operations Advisory Area without an appropriate SFOC. For detailed information see the Transport Canada UAV website.
