Friday 13th – Airspace closed in Port Dover


The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Norfolk County Detachment would like to remind everyone that will be attending Friday the 13th that the downtown core airspace will be closed.

Pursuant to section 5.1 of the Aeronautics Act, air space is restricted during police operations, except for police, medevac and rescue aircraft.

During the events of Friday the 13th, air space is closed for four (4) nautical miles from the centre of town in Port Dover to 2000 feet above surface. This will reduce any conflicts with other Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) (drones) or low flying air craft.

No person should be operating any RPAS’s (drones) or aircraft within the area unless authorized by Transport Canada.

This will ensure that no conflicts will take place with other individuals attempting to use RPAS’s (drones) or aircrafts that may put the public at risk or interfere with police operations.
