This is to ensure the safety of low-level aircraft rehearsing for and participating in the aerial flypast for National Day Parade 2017 (NDP 2017). The dates and timings stated below include the rehearsals and preview shows of NDP 2017 as well as the parade on National Day.

The temporary Restricted Area (as shown in Annex A) will encompass the Marina Bay Floating Platform and surrounding areas, and will extend from ground level to 600 feet above mean sea level.

The establishment of the temporary Restricted Area is to ensure the safety of the aircraft and the public. During the stated dates and timings, the conduct of aerial activities (such as kite-flying, hoisting of captive balloons and flying of unmanned aircraft e.g. unmanned drones) is prohibited within and into the temporary Restricted Area, unless authorised by the CAAS, as such activities endanger the aircraft as well as people and property on the ground.

Unauthorised conduct of aerial activities within and into the temporary Restricted Area is an offence under the ANO. SAF personnel will be deployed to conduct enforcement activities. 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 instance.
