Surge in applications for unmanned drones

[Extract]

Unmanned drones weighing more than 7kg (without fuel) are subject to the same strict regulations and controls as manned aircraft, such as registration, air-worthiness and flight operations requirements.

For unmanned aircraft weighing less than 7kg, a permit from the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore is needed if they are being flown within 5km of an aerodrome or, outside that radius, at an altitude higher than 61m above mean sea level.
