It’s About Time… The FAA Approves Electronic Device Use from Gate-to-Gate

The FAA announced today that handheld portable electronic devices can be used gate to gate, and do not need to be powered off during takeoff and landing.  The application of this will be carried out on an airline by airline basis, but this policy is expected to be rolled out by the end of this year.

A important note is that this precludes the use of laptops, as they are considered large enough to be a projectile item.

My first thought when I heard this news was poor Mr. Alec Baldwin.  I am sure he will be having some Words with his Friends…
