FCC Chairman Pushes For More Electronic Devices On Flights

December 6, 2012

Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski encouraged the Federal Aviation Administration on Thursday to allow more electronic devices to be safely used during flights.

The FAA is conducting a review of its rules to determine whether more cell phones, tablets, and other mobile devices can be used more widely and safely on commercial flights.

"The review comes at a time of tremendous innovation as mobile devices are increasingly interwoven in our daily lives," Genachowski wrote in a letter to acting FAA Administrator Michael Huerta. "They empower people to stay informed and connected with friends and family, and they enable both large and small businesses to be more productive and efficient, helping drive economic growth and boost U.S. competitiveness."
