Airline CEOs seek 5G rollout delay due to interference with key cockpit systems
AT&T and Verizon are planned to rollout new C-band 5G wireless services in large cities on Jan. 5, but aviation officials have warned that it could result in massive flight delays during storms and cloudy weather. Airline execs say C-band 5G signals could interfere with the cockpit systems that are used to track a plane's altitude and help with landings in bad weather. United Airlines CEO Scott Kirby said that the 5G rollout could delay, divert, or cancel ~4% of daily flights. The FAA issued an order outlining possible restrictions for systems used for landing in bad weather due to potential 5G interference. Link
