Myth about Airplanes
Turn off electronics gadget during a flight
There is no real evidence that your mobile phone or your iPod interferes with the aircraft systems. In fact a pilot friend mentioned that the pilots always have their mobile phones turned on in the cockpit throughout the flight anyway. , the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) imposed the ban for fear that the signals that these devices give off could interfere with the cockpit s instrumentation, possibly causing a plane to crash. This regulation is still in effect because studies have not been able to prove that disastrous outcomes would not take place, though there is also no proof that it could really happen.
