Aerial activities – such as the flying of kites or unmanned aircraft – are becoming increasingly popular in Malaysia. When flown in the vicinity of an airport or airbase, they may become a hazardous distraction to pilots especially during take-off and landing of their aircraft. Depending on their size and composition, these objects may be ingested by aircraft engines. This may in turn endanger lives and cause harm to the property – in the air and on the ground. Aerial activities must therefore be conducted with due regard to aviation safety given Malaysia’s busy airspace and landscape.
