While using electronics during takeoff and landing is currently prohibited on commercial flights, that might change. The Federal Aviation Administration is reviewing its policy on electronics and will possibly make a recommendation to allow them during all flight times.According to the Associated Press, the FAA doesn't actually ban all electronic devices when the plane is under 10,000 feet. Instead, it requires airlines to test devices to make sure they do not interfere with avionics before allowing their use. Due to the high volume of different devices released in this day and age, airlines simply ban the use of electronics, as testing every device would be implausible. The study will begin this fall, and will be made up professionals from tech companies and the aeronautics industry. The FAA did say that cell phone usage is not under consideration, and will remain forbidden.
