The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) yesterday shared a list of airports that will have buffer zones when communication companies switch on the controversial new 5G C-band service on January 19th. The move follows the rise of notable concerns from authorities about the technology’s impact on aviation safety.
Last month, the FAA issued a pair of airworthiness directives to mitigate fears about the impact that the C-band signals could have on operations. Ultimately, there are anxieties that the networks may interfere with an aircraft’s altimeters. So, in certain conditions, airline services could become disrupted.
