WOW! Thought for sure there would be an aviator out there someplace. Maybe everybody is too busy hunting?

Not that simple flying drones anymore. Regulations dictate a proper license as basically the whole city is now in a controlled zone. I'd imagine it wouldn't be a cheap endeavor hiring someone professional. For more info:

I have buddies in Calgary that fly drones shouldn't be a big deal at all. Give me a day or 2.

I'm a drone pilot, but I can't fly until I update some registration. Are you working in any way with the construction project? If not, and you don't have permission from them or the city, you're going to have trouble finding a respectable pilot that would make that flight.
