BEIJING, Feb. 26 (Xinhua) -- Beijing will ban the flying of low, slow and small aerial vehicles around the upcoming annual sessions of China's top legislative and political advisory bodies in March, local police said Tuesday.

The ban, targeting aerial vehicles and balloons for sports, entertainment and advertising, will go into effect starting March 3 until the closing day of the annual session of the National People's Congress, according to the municipal bureau of public security.

The flying of such aerial vehicles for other purposes should first receive approval from the military and civil aviation authorities.

The ban covers light and ultralight airplanes, gliders, delta-wing airplanes, hot air balloons, drones and model airplanes.
