I never suggested that all UAS require pilots at the helm but rather, those subjected to Airworthiness Processes. Class 1 UAS (like the one pictured) can be operated, in the CAF, by anyone with a Basic and/or Advanced UAS Operator course. Our regulations are very much in line with what TCCA and other civilian regulators allow.
What we’re discussing are Class 2/3 UAS which are subjected to Airworthiness Processes (to varying degrees).
What other nations accept as UAS pilot in their sovereign airspace is up to them. Several nations expressed their requirement to have winged pilots at the helm. Not much we can do about that, unless we made ACSOs pilots.
