iPads & Kindles Getting Closer to Being Allowed During Take Off & Landing

Screen Shot 2013-10-01 at 10.22.24 AMThings are looking good for frequent fliers that want to read their Kindle books and listen to music on their iPhones during takeoff and landing.

A safety advisory panel has recommended to the Federal Aviation Administration that airline passengers should be allowed to use their personal electronics when planes are below 10,000 feet.

This has been in the works for over a year now and it could be getting closer. The panel sent these recommendations to an advisory panel on Monday. The recommendations suggest that passengers should refrain from sending text messages or emails, as well as Web browsing while the plane is taking off and landing. The panel said that passengers could use email or browse the web once the aircraft’s Wi-Fi has been turned on when the plane has reached its cruising altitude.
