During the specified dates and timings, the unauthorised conduct of aerial activities, such as flying of unmanned aircrafts, kite-flying and hoisting of captive balloons within and into the restricted area is not allowed.

This is to ensure the safety of low-flying aircraft, the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) said in a statement on Thursday.

The temporary restricted area will be in place on the specific reserve dates and times if weather conditions are poor on the planned dates.

It will encompass the Padang and surrounding areas, including VivoCity, Marina Barrage, the Sports Hub and Orchard, from ground level to 4,000 feet above sea level.

CAAS cautioned that the unauthorised conduct of aerial activities within and into the temporary restricted area is an offence under the Air Navigation Order. Offenders may be fined up to $20,000 in the first instance, up to $40,000 in subsequent instances, and/or jailed for up to 15 months.
