Media reports confirm that a federal advisory committee has prepared a report for American Federal Aviation Administration, saying that flights can handle switched-on gadgets at all times, including takeoff and landing. This is true about the devices not connected to the web.
In case the suggestion is approved, the passengers will be able to enjoy their ebooks, music players and other devices during takeoff and landings. The above mentioned report, commissioned by the Federal Aviation Administration, recommends testing transmission tolerance on older aircraft. As for the newer aircraft types, they will be considered safe for electronic transmissions.
According to the industry officials, the suggestions could be approved as early as the end of 2013. The aircraft types able to tolerate electronic transmissions are already in use, some of them fitted out with picocells for in flight phone calls. In case a plane already has a picocell, it means that it has already been evaluated to have electronic devices for all phases of flight. Such aircrafts are Airbus 330 300s and Boeing 747 400s, for example.
However, the report still doesn’t recommend using mobile or Wi-Fi connections below 10,000 feet. While tablets and e-readers can be allowed for use during takeoffs and landings, larger laptops are expected to be stowed away. Amazon, which has one employee on the committee, claimed that the report was a “big win for customers”.
Delta Airlines recently announced that its pilots will be given Windows Surface 2 tablets for their electronic flight bags. The kit will be given to pilots of Boeing 757 and 767, with more to come in 2014.

|Oh wow finally I can enjoy music in plane rather than getting bored..Thanks for the news SaM|
|I have always been using my iPod upon take-off and landings with no problems (i.e. it never brought the plane's electronics down); I just pretended to not use it until the flight attendants had to sit down, so they won't ask you to "kindly turn off your electronic device". This obviously does not work if you sit in exit row in front of the hotties and in business and first no one dares to bother you anyway, so no news for music. Laptops and wifi I can understand however, laptops will cleanly slice your head in two in case of an emergency and what goof is scanning for a wifi signal anyway upon landing or take-off? Flying rocks, might as well have the right background music when there is some action.|

|@MafiaSSS: Mp3 players with storage have existed for over a decade. Join the 21st century.|
There are two problems with this change. 1. Stupid f#cking people won't pay attention to the flight instructions, and so when there is an accident, people will not act properly. 2. Devices output all kinds of emissions. I know for a fact that (some) devices that go through FCC certification are not the exact product shipping (against the law, but who's going to catch them?). Of course, the BIG BIG model electronics will adhere to the emissions limits, but not everything out of Asia or even North America...
|that's right, nobody wants to be sitting next to anyone on the talking on the phone during the flight.|
its bad enough to sit next to them, especially those that are so inconsiderate that they wear too much cologne or aftershave, or very annoying smells like patchouli.
don't they know that a little soap and water works better than layers of disguising stench added to stench?
