Electronic Devices Okay to Use During Take Offs/Landings

Share this post

Airline passengers will no longer hear "please turn off all electronic devices" during take off and landings. The Federal Aviation Administration announced today passengers will be able to use most devices, unless the crew tells them otherwise. FAA Administrator Michael Huerta says - talking on cell phones - is still prohibited, but it is now safe to read downloaded materials, like e-books and calendars, and also to play games.
The committee determined that most commercial airplanes can tolerate radio interference form portable electronic devices.
