No proof, so why turn iPhone off before take off?
I’m sure you know that when you take to the skies to go travelling it is a requirement of the Federal Aviation Administration that on a commercial airline flyers must power off their tech devises completely whilst the aircraft takes off into the wild blue yonder, so one would presume that your tablet or smartphone would interfere with the planes instruments in some way or another right?
Well according to the guys over at iDownload Blog by way of a statement that was issued to The New York Times, this apparently doesn’t appear to be the case, as apparently there is no proof that your iPhone, Apple iPad or any other smartphone or slate for that matter that tech devices interfere with anything and there’s no proven reason for the rule.
Apparently even the Federal Aviation Administration don’t know why this power off tech devices rule when taking off exists; however the FAA did explain why the rule still stands, as although there is no evidence devices can’t interfere with an aircraft, there is no evidence saying they can.
So basically if you are taking to the skies you have to turn off that Apple iPad or smartphone simply because no one really knows whether they interfere or not but just in case they might the ruling is in place.
Seems to me that perhaps it’s about time someone actually ran a few tests to see if tech gear does actually interfere with the planes instruments so they can put a little clarity on the situation don’t you agree?
