PlanesUS regulators have cleared passengers to use mobile devices in flight-mode on planes

Aviation regulators have cleared the safe use of mobile devices during take-off and landing in the US.

Airlines are expected to let passengers use smartphones, tablets, and e-book readers from gate to gate in the US by the end of the year.

Internet connections for email, web surfing, and downloading will be prohibited below 10,000 feet.

Cellular voice calls will remain banned because of the possibility of radio interference with flight equipment.

The changes to US regulations mean passengers will be able to read e-books, play games, and watch videos for the duration of a flight.

Airlines will need to perform safety checks before changing their current policies on device use.

Carriers must show the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) that they can handle the effects that mobile devices have on flight instruments and avionics, and they must assess risks such as stowage problems.
