On the 25th, the director of civil aviation, Li Tianzhu, said that 140 proposals had been received during the consultation period.

However, they did not disclose whether passengers would be exempted from one of the indispensable parts of the electronic universal experimental aircraft

it is reported that the use of UAV aerial photography in Hong Kong is mainly regulated by the air navigation (Hong Kong) Order 1995. The Ordinance stipulates that no person shall cause or allow the aircraft to pose a danger to the safety of others or property due to recklessness or negligence. If he wants to operate a UAV weighing more than 7 kg, he must obtain the prior approval of the civil aviation department. According to the air transport (air service licences) regulation, the use of drones to provide paid services must be approved by the civil aviation department in advance

the Civil Aviation Department has previously consulted the public on the regulation of UAVs. Li Tianzhu said that about 140 proposals were received during the consultation period, and the mainstream opinion supports strengthening legislation to regulate UAV operation. He disclosed that the authorities initially tend to establish a registration system. They have UAVs weighing more than 250 grams. They must register their personal data through the system. They also plan to require the aircraft owners to buy third-party insurance and complete safety training. In addition, the authorities are considering extending the no fly zone to densely populated areas and sensitive facilities, such as prisons. Li Tianzhu said that it is expected that the relevant draft will be submitted to the Legislative Council in mid-2019 and implemented as soon as 2020

however, the consultation document points out that it is difficult to require passengers and visitors to register. It is also said that passengers have been regulated by the existing laws. If this regulatory method is used, the civil aviation department will consider adopting effective ways to distribute the safety information of UAVs at various immigration control points. As for the requirements for purchasing third-party insurance and completing safety training, the document did not mention whether passengers would be exempted

Legislative Council member Tan Wenhao believes that whether to exempt the registration requirements of passengers can be discussed during legislation. As for the requirements of buying third-party insurance and safety training, he believes that there should be no exemption just because the operator is a passenger, otherwise it will become a loophole. He suggested that a mutual recognition system could be established between Hong Kong and overseas countries, and only when passengers have appropriate licenses overseas can they be registered in 5 Safe installation and limit installation shall be flexible and firm; Hong Kong operates unmanned aerial vehicles, similar to international driving licenses

Zhou Yile, founder of the Hong Kong UAV Aerial Photography Association, said that from time to time, he saw films taken by passengers over Victoria Harbor in overseas aerial photography groups. He believed that many passengers did not know that UAVs could not be used over Victoria Harbor. He suggested that if legislation was required, passengers should also be required to simply register UAVs, or they should be required to register their UAVs when they arrived in Hong Kong
