Danger & Warning Areas

An airspace of defined dimensions above the land areas or territorial waters of a State within which the flight of aircraft is restricted in accordance with certain specified conditions or activities dangerous to the flight of aircraft may exist at specified times.

This term is used whenever the flight of civil aircraft within the designated airspace is not absolutely prohibited but may be made only if specified conditions are complied with or only when the potential danger to aircraft has not led to the designation of the airspace as restricted or prohibited.

The effect of the creation of the danger area is to caution operators or pilots of aircraft that it is necessary for them to assess the dangers in relation to their responsibility for the safety of their aircraft and, prohibition of flight unless special permission had been obtained, leads to the designation of restricted area.

Private Properties

Guidelines and Contact information:-

Temporary Restricted Areas

An airspace with defined dimensions, will extend from ground level to 4,000 feet above mean sea level. The establishment of the temporary Restricted Area is to ensure the safety of aircraft and the public. During the stated dates and times, aerial activities such as flying of drones and other unmanned aircraft, release of flight lanterns, kite-flying and hoisting of captive balloons are prohibited within the temporary Restricted Area unless authorised by CAAS.

According to CAAS, night flying is allowed as long as you follow the UA Safety guidelines 

During the ‘Safe Re-opening’ (Phase One) of the gradual lifting of the circuit breaker measures, non-essential activities and social gathering will continue to be prohibited. Therefore, outdoor recreational unmanned aircraft (UA) flying cannot be resumed. 

In Phase Two, outdoor recreational unmanned aircraft (UA) flying is allowed. However, UA operators must adhere to safe distancing measures and UA regulations.
