Transport Canada issued a Civil Aviation Safety Alert to remind all persons operating unmanned aircraft (model aircraft and unmanned air vehicles or UAVs), for any purpose, about the safety impacts and consequences of interfering with manned aircraft operations, including firefighting aircraft.
This summer, a number of incidents occurred in British Columbia where manned aircraft fighting forest fires were grounded due to interference from unmanned aircraft. The Canadian Aviation Regulations state that no unauthorized person shall operate an aircraft within 5 nautical miles (9 km) of a forest fire or within any associated restricted airspace.
The Civil Aviation Safety Alert is also a reminder of the consequences of contravening regulations pertaining to the use of unmanned aircraft.
Please distribute the Alert or this message where appropriate.
Thank you,

AIRSPACE AROUND AND OVER A FOREST FIRE IS CLOSED TO ALL AIRCRAFT NOT DIRECTLY INVOLVED IN FIRE FIGHTING OPERATIONS.

Anyone who violates controlled or restricted airspace and endangers the safety of manned aircraft could be subject to fines or administrative penalties up to $25,000 and/or imprisonment.
