Electronics on airplanes

Finally, the FAA may change their rules, according to Ars Technica. It’s about time this got changed as it’s been a ridiculous rule. I’ve heard lots of pilots and various people express concern over large concentrations of devices emitting signals. If that were the case, you’d have seen lots of terrorists or bored kids keeping all their devices on to see what happened.

The best quote in the article is from the comment section shown below:



This is an overreaction from the FAA, because they were concerned and didn’t have data. Fine, but then gather data, don’t just keep rules because you don’t understand things. Do some research and then only limit things that are truly dangerous.

Another great example of how the government has infringed on our rights for no particular reason.
