With concerns over privacy, security and safety, drone flying has been limited to only certain areas and heights. However, recognising the need to test unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), the Singapore government has established the nation’s first drone estate.

The designated area is one-north near Buona Vista which hosts many research and development centres.

According to a joint statement by the Ministry of Transport, Civil Association Authority of Singapore and Jurong Town Corporation, the 200-hectare one-north business park is an ideal location to test varying urban environment complexities for UAS operations.
