1/2 mile? Doesnt look like a control zone to request S vfr anywhere close.

 

Uncontrolled

Airspace 1 000 feet AGL

or above not less than

1 mile vis

horizontally: 2 000 feet

vertically: 500 feet

 

 

below 1 000 feet AGL

not less than

1 mile

clear of cloud

 

CARs 602.115 "d) where the aircraft is a helicopter and is operated at less than 1,000 feet AGL

 

(i) during the day, flight visibility is not less than one mile, except if otherwise authorized in an air operator certificate ... helicopter,

CARS 703.28 and Standard 723.28 authorizes operations in reduced visibility to 1/2 mile.

If you have an Ops Spec,that allows it in your Op Certificate. You can fly in uncontrolled airspace below 1000' with 1/2 mile vis. If the pilot has 500hrs Pic, and has had low vis training, and a PDM course.

I'm pretty sure I have all the requirements listed, if I don't, can someone correct me
