Recon Aerial Brand Licencee partners are companies and individuals who work with Recon Aerial Media through a Licensee Agreement to start a drone business. The agreement outlines the simple terms of the arrangement and provides the foundation for mutual success. The terms of the arrangement will vary slightly country to country depending upon the legal requirements.
For all countries the basic requirements to become a Brand Licensee partner are:
- Initial fee payment (varies per country minimum 5K USD)
- Annual renewal fee payment (varies per country min 2.5K USD)
- Drivers licence/medical fitness
- 50 hrs verifiable drone flight time

The Recon Aerial Media UAV Brand Licencee model is now available in Canada.
The training requirement is met by taking a course equivalent to the TP15263 training standard with our preferred partner or equivalent. The aviation regulations in Canada are changing and in the near future for UAVs and will require that pilots hold a Drone Pilot Licence. We have it on good authority that the TP15263 training will be transferable under the new regulatory requirement.
