China Considers Real-Name Registration for Drones
(Beijing) — Each drone that flies in China’s skies may soon be traced back to an individual owner, as the government considers guidelines that will require real-name registration in the loosely regulated sectors.
The move comes as drones have seen soaring sales but also increasingly have become hindrances to civil aviation.
“Our foremost obligation is to register air vehicles and keep track of drone flyers,” said Feng Zhenlin, president of China’s Civil Aviation Administration, in an interview Saturday on the sidelines of the “two sessions” — the meetings of the National People’s Congress and the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference.
