Public UA Flying Areas
MOT and CAAS have established a pilot Unmanned Aircraft Flying Area (UAFA) at Pandan Reservoir. The pilot UAFA at Pandan Reservoir provides a community space for UA enthusiasts to gather and interact while facilitating and supporting safe and responsible recreational UA operations.
It features 16 hectares of UA flying area over the reservoir waters. It is fitted with light amenities needed for UA activities. These include tables and benches to provide UA operators with a clean and comfortable place to sit and set up their UA.
Current UA regulatory requirements will continue to apply at the UAFA. These regulatory requirements can be found here. Recreational UA flying is allowed outside of UAFA if you are not within the no-fly zones. Please check OneMap here to ensure that you are not within the no-fly-zones. The shaded areas of the map show the no-fly zones.
The UAFA is open to the general public, where no fees are required for entry or usage. Clear signages with the relevant information on the prevailing UA regulations and on-site operating guidelines are also installed around the UAFA. The UAFA guidelines are listed below:
This area is a shared common space. Please be considerate towards other users.

Please fly within the boundaries of the UA flying areas as demarcated on site by flags and water buoys.
