FAA Plans to Implement Common Sense; Allow Electronics during Takeoff and Landings

The AP is reporting that the FAA has recommended that passengers be allowed to use personal electronics during takeoff and landing. The era of ridiculous rules against reading Kindles, listening to music, and taking photos during the best part of the flight may finally be drawing to a close. Electronics would be allowed to be used in airplane mode while the aircraft is under 10,000 feet. That's a great change.

This photo is strictly verboten under the current rules. Hopefully that will change soon!

So far, the recommendation is just that: A recommendation. The FAA still has to act on it. Hopefully, they can get it through whatever process and into action as soon as possible. The AP is reporting that the new rules could take effect by early 2014. It can't come soon enough.
