“Now picture how bad it would be for a pilot who is taking directions from ATC on the ground, all of a sudden loses signal and starts flying blindly all because of the frequency of a passenger’s phone which interjected it.”

Ryan C, a commercial pilot who wished to remain anonymous, agreed explaining aeroplane mode “is required to mitigate any possible interference to sensitive aeroplane systems”.

The radio signals are the same frequencies used by cell phones and tablets, the pilot explained.

“The radios for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, voice calling, 3G, 4G, and 5G data all use different parts of the radio frequency spectrum,” he said.
