FAA Will Soon Allow Mobile Devices to Remain Powered Throughout Entire Flight

FAA

Change is in the air, pun intended. The FAA has announced a new change in policy will now allow passengers to use their mobile devices throughout the entire flight process, from takeoff to landing.

After detailed research it has been decided that there is no practical reason for requiring the power-off of such devices. This means that you will now be able to do anything with your phone, tablet or laptop. The only caveat, is that you will not be able to connect to mobile data.

Cellphones will have to remain in airplane mode, and tablets with cellular data will be subject to the same rule. The good news is that many airports are now starting to introduce Wi-Fi to their plans, which can be used throughout the flight process.

The changes will not take place immediately, as individual testing of different plane types and other training/safety issues must be addressed first. The process is expected to be completed within the remainder of this year.
