SINGAPORE - The public may be able to enjoy popular aerial activities such as flying kites and model aircraft in more areas of Singapore in the future.
The Straits Times reported today that the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) is looking at easing restrictions on these activities.
It is embarking on a review of such regulations, which prohibits aerial activities within a 5km radius of an airport and airbase to ensure a safe operating environment free of hazards to aircraft.
"There is potential to liberalise the current restrictions on height and permitted areas for the conduct of specific types of aerial activities while maintaining high international aviation safety standards," the aviation body said in a media statement on Wednesday.
Public who wish to provide feedback can do so via the CAAS website (www.caas.gov.sg) and REACH (www.reach.gov.sg).
