The Federal Aviation Administration’s decision to allow passengers to use electronic devices during taxiing, takeoff and landing was based on a report issued last month by an advisory group.
This group, which was announced last year, was tasked with figuring out if the use of electronic devices during flights could be expanded. Members of this committee included representatives from aviation industry groups, aircraft manufacturers, device manufacturers and airlines. They were supposed to issue their findings over the summer before asking for an extension. The group ultimately issued its report Sept. 30.
