Drones might also pose a risk to aircraft that are landing or taking off - which is why flying model aircraft is banned within 5km of an airport or airbase, said a spokesman for the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS). This includes areas such as Pasir Ris,Tampines, Ang Mo Kio, Woodlands and Boon Lay. Outside the 5km limit, model aircraft, including drones, cannot fly above 61m. To fly within the 5km limit or above 61m, permission from CAAS is needed. Photo-taking in the air or flying any unmanned aircraft that weighs more than 7kg requires authorisation as well. Even then, unmanned aircraft operators are expected to take precautions to ensure their craft do not pose a hazard to aircraft, people or property, the CAAS spokesman said. Those who flout the rules can be fined up to $20,000. Repeat offenders can be fined up to $40,000, jailed for up to 15 months, or both.
