    Laptop usage in-flight

    by ceatach » Thu Nov 03, 2005 4:16 pm

    Whats the official word on using a laptop with no network connection capabilities in flight?
    I am aware of this circular:
    http://www.ead.eurocontrol.int/eadbasic ... _17_en.pdf

    The words 'should be banned' arent quite 'must be banned' :? Am I wrong?

    Also, There seems to be some flexibility with equipment that meets certain requirements for interference (based on the second paragraph). How can I find these requirements for my aircraft type? (cant see anything in the flight manual)

    cheers....

    I think this is a very old document? ?93.
    Major airlines are introducing, at this moment, on their long haul fleet onboard WiFi networks/access for their First and Business/Club World customers so that they can access their email and the Internet during their flight.
