Fly It Safe
In Singapore, aerial activities - such as kite-flying, parasailing, kite-surfing, the flying of unmanned aircraft (includes the flying of unmanned airships and aero-modeling), release of free-flying helium balloons, release of captive balloons and sky lanterns - are becoming increasing popular. However, if these aerial objects are flown in the vicinity of an airport or airbase, they can pose a hazardous distraction to pilots of aircraft especially during take-off and landing. Depending on their size and composition, these objects may be ingested by aircraft engines. In turn, this may endanger lives and cause damage to persons and property in the air and on the ground. As such, it is important that aerial activities are conducted with due regard to aviation safety given Singapore's tight airspace and intense aircraft operations.
Certain aerial activities require a notification to CAAS or a permit from CAAS in order to be conducted. For more information on the different types of activities and their requirements, please refer to the relevant sections below or watch our informative video.
