By This Time Next Year, You Might Finally Be Able to Use Your Electronics During Takeoff

It’s hard to say what the most obnoxious part of air travel is . . . but having to shut down all electronics during takeoff and landing definitely gets a few votes.  Mainly because it’s ridiculous.  Your iPad isn’t going to make a modern plane malfunction.

The FAA has finally recognized that it’s probably time to back off that rule.  And just in time, too . . . now that we’re all so addicted to our electronics, even 10 minutes without them starts giving us the shakes.

They’re currently running a study on whether electronics might still have the potential to interfere with a plane’s operations and navigation.  In July, they’ll discuss the findings from the study.

 

 

–And assuming the study turns out like everyone expects it to, you could be allowed to use your electronics during takeoff and landing by the end of this year.

 

 

–But . . . you’ll still need to put your devices in airplane mode.  Data connections still won’t work right in the air, and still have the remote potential to cause problems.
