Above the Gallop Canal - From Iroquois to Cardinal

I was recently contacted to see if I could get some drone aerial pics from above the Gallop Canal from Iroquois to Cardinal. It seems that there are preliminary discussions about a project to create a bike path along the south side of the old Gallop Canal, between Iroquois & Cardinal. I think it is a great idea!

At first I was doubtful that I could help since Canada instituted drone flight regulations to prohibit flights within a 5.2 km radius of airports. Iroquois Airport is there right at the east end of the Gallop Canal. However, I found several flights that I made before the rules came into effect (from 2015). So here are some good screen shots from these videos. I hope they are helpful!

I will add some pics from the west end near Cardinal, flying from points more than 5.2 km west of Iroquois Airport later.
