A national registration system has been established and will be launched tomorrow as the Civil Aviation Administration of China has ordered all drone owners to register their product under their real names beginning from June 1.
It is an effort to regulate the market and ensure flight safety, cutting down cancellations and delays.
The unmanned aerial vehicles, commonly known as drones, has recently led to more than 200 flight intrusions at Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport.
The CAAC said all drones weighing more than 250 grams are required to be registered so a national database for drone operation and register can be established.
The Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport, in southwestern China's Sichuan Province, has been the victim of drone intrusions since April. This has posed a serious threat to flight safety in the civil aviation industry while causing much frustration to passengers by the nuisance drones.
Unregulated drone flyers have brought "threats to national and people's safety" already, said the CAAC.
Drones are a popular consumer electronics toy in China, with Shenzhen-based DJI one of world's biggest drone-makers.
"It's necessary to have a national policy," said a Shanghai-based drone flyer identified by online ID Paizhaolaodie, who purchased a DJI 4 three years ago. "It's also important to clarify how to punish the rule-breakers."
