FAA Expands the Use of Portable Electronic Devices in Flight from Take-off to Landing
The US now allows airlines to expand the use of portable electronic devices in flight from take-off to landing. FAA now allows users to use personal electronic devices during flight except mobiles for voice communications.
FAA said on Thursday, "Passengers will eventually be able to read e-books, play games, and watch videos on their devices during all phases of flight, with very limited exceptions," according to Reuters.
But in-flight mobile use for voice communications is still not allowed. This issue is still under consideration of the Federal Communications Commission.
FAA immediately provides implementation guidance and time frame details to airlines after the decision.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
