Cellphone Plane Dangers
 
Hi, Greetings Captain Lim,

I'm pretty sure that this question has been asked many times before here and elsewhere. I apologize for any repetition in the matter. But still, I want to know directly from an expert in the field. Thank you for your time.

The main question is, can cell phones (or any electronic device) really cause substantial harm toward an aircraft's navigation system and flight mechanics? Or is it merely a myth? Can you tell me any air disaster contributed by the use of cell phones on board an aircraft?

It is bothering me, because I frequently fly with Air Asia from Kuala Lumpur to the Borneo island and it is very common to see passengers (notably foreign passengers who apparently do not understand English) who are constantly pushing the keypads on their cell phones in the middle of a flight, and on final approach as the aircraft is preparing for landing (scary!). Do these people really pose threat to the aircraft's integrity?

Once again thank you very much for your time. It is good to have a platform where people could post questions and receive direct feedback from the experts themselves. Keep this website running and keep up the good work. I'm looking forward to hear more from you.

Best regards,

Farhan.

Hi Farhan,

As this question has been asked many times, it is listed in the top 10 FAQ in the Travel 3Sixty Magazine here.

There are also 9 other FAQ for your pleasure reading. The answer in the magazine above is a brief one but you can also search for a more detailed article in this site or on an earlier issue of the magazine.

Please watch the videos on Cell Phone Plane Dangers above and how to select Airplane Mode on your phone below.
