Sugu Consulting Services
Sugu also provides consulting services for firefighting, and SFOC’s. Drones can provide a birds-eye view of a fire and live-streaming high-resolution thermal images. This can be used to find victims faster, assess hazardous situations from a distance and even search and rescue by dropping supplies.
Providing SFOC consulting services, Sugu assist with the application submission and design. A SFOC (Special Flight Operations Certificate) is a document issued by Transport Canada that tells you how and where you may fly your drone. For more information on SFOC’s, see: Transport Canada’s website. Generally it applies to compliant drones operating in a urbanized environment. Sugu is a one stop shop where you can find insurance and download resources from Transport Canada on there school website.

Sugu also makes drones available for rental. Upon completion of our course, students will be able to rent out compliant drones for usage in urban environments. Students will be subject to a final exam and flight review.
