MONTRÉAL, March 16, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - In the wake of the federal government's announcement of new rules governing the flying of recreational drones, Aéroports de Montréal (ADM) wishes to congratulate Canadian Transport Minister Marc Garneau for this important safety initiative.

"Like birds, drones are an aviation safety risk and it was important to regulate this type of aircraft, particularly when used for recreational purposes," says Pierre-Paul Pharand, ADM's Vice-President, Airport Operations, Infrastructures and Air Services Development. "Aéroports de Montréal, with the support of its Airport Patrol service, will remain vigilant to ensure compliance with these regulations and the safety of its facilities."
