Those who conduct aerial and unmanned aircraft activities within temporary restricted areas without the required permits from CAAS face fines and imprisonment under the ANO and the Air Navigation (101 – Unmanned Aircraft Operations) Regulations 2019 (ANR-101).
Under the Air Navigation Order, which covers aerial activities, first-time offenders face a fine of up to S$20,000. Second and subsequent offences are punishable by a fine of up to S$40,000, up to 15 months in prison, or both.
Under ANR-101, which covers unmanned aircraft activities, first-time offenders face a fine of up to S$50,000, up to two years in prison, or both. Those who offend again face a fine of up to S$100,000, up to five years in prison, or both.
“In addition to the TRAs, existing restrictions on the conduct of aerial and unmanned aircraft activities within 5km of aerodromes, Danger Areas, Prohibited Areas, Restricted Areas and Protected Areas remain in force,” CAAS added.
“Members of the public are reminded to check the OneMap.sg website or the OneMap app for information on areas where the conduct of aerial and unmanned aircraft activities is prohibited or requires a permit.”
Information on the temporary restricted area will also be available on the Singapore Grand Prix website and the CAAS website.
