Permit to Fly within Singapore Airspace

If you do not have a valid Certificate of Airworthiness (CoA) for your aircraft, you will need to apply for a Permit to Fly from CAAS to fly within Singapore airspace (without fare-paying passengers or cargo), subject to conditions and limitations.

As the CAAS Permit to Fly does not constitute an authorisation to fly in the airspace of other States, the operator will need to seek permission and/or clearances from the authorities of the respective states over which the flight will take place before the flight.

For more information, please refer to Air Navigation Regulation (ANR) 91 Reg 5.

Application Information

  • Go to eSOMS to submit the Permit to Fly application together with all relevant documents at least 5 working days before the intended date of operation. In the event eSOMS is not available, please complete and submit the form CAAS(AW)101. (Note: The application fees are prescribed in the Twelfth Schedule of the Singapore Air Navigation Order (ANO))
  • Ensure that your submission is complete to avoid delay or rejection.
  • Application must be submitted by an employee of the operator, or a representative appointed with a written delegation letter signed by the management of the operator uploaded in the eSOMS.
  • Aircraft may be subjected to inspection by CAAS prior to issuance of the Permit to Fly to ensure that the aircraft is fit for the intended flight.
