“Drones should be regulated to safeguard public safety.” -Pimentel

Senate President Aquilino Pimentel filed Senate Bill No. 1723 early this month wherein all drone owners, whether using the equipment for “hobbyist or commercial use” are required to periodically register their drones with the Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines.

Pimentel said it must be regulated because the same drones used for recreational and commercial purposes might also be used to violate people’s rights, especially the right to privacy.
