Drone owners and fans in China can expect a tough time after the People's Liberation Army Air Force has pledged to tighten monitoring of such aircraft.

Colonel Shen Jinke, spokesman for the PLA Air Force, said that to safeguard airspace security, the Air Force, in cooperation with civil aviation and public security departments, will enhance the management and control of small unmanned aerial vehicles that fly at low altitude and slow speed.

In recent years, flights of small drones have become rampant across the country despite the government's efforts to handle the problem, Shen said. Some of the flights have threatened the safety of military and civilian aircraft, he added.
