During the stated dates and times, aerial activities such as flying of drones and other unmanned aircraft, release of flight lanterns, kite-flying and hoisting of captive balloons are prohibited within the temporary Restricted Area unless authorised by CAAS.

The unauthorised conduct of aerial activities within a temporary Restricted Area is an offence under the Air Navigation Order. Members of the public are reminded that the authorities take a serious view of errant aerial activities which may pose threats to the aircraft involved in the demonstration flights or endanger the personal safety of others, and will not hesitate to take action against those who contravene the regulations. If convicted, a person can be fined up to S$20,000 in the first instance and fined up to S$40,000 and/or imprisoned for up to 15 months in subsequent instances.

Information on the temporary Restricted Area to be established during the ITSWC 2019 is also available on www.caas.gov.sg.
