US officials have warned that the launch of the new 5G service could “halt” and “limit tens of thousands of Americans overseas” due to the suspension of US commercial aircraft.
Warnings of aviation “disaster” crisis to White House National Economic Council director Brian Disse, Transport Secretary Pete Boutigig, FAA Administrator Steve Dixon and Federal Communications Commission Chairwoman Jessica Roszenworld, Reuters reported Monday.
The letter, signed by CEOs of American Airlines, Delta Airlines, United Airlines, Southwest Airlines and Jet Blue, states: As well as freight and freight forwarders UPS and FedEx, he said.
He warned that the new C-Band 5G technology could interfere with critical aircraft equipment, such as radio ultimeters – which would limit the distance from the ground to the bottom of the aircraft and affect low visual performance.
“This means that, as of yesterday, more than 1,100 flights and 100,000 passengers will be canceled, diverted or delayed,” the letter warned, calling for immediate action.
“Frankly, the country’s trade will be cut off,” the executives said.
The airline, the lobby team that prepared the letter, and government agencies were not immediately available for comment.
In a letter dated 4 January, the team thanked Buttigieg, Dickson and Deese for “reaching an agreement with AT&T and Verizon to move the planned 5G C-band around certain airports for two weeks and to implement the planned reductions.”
“Safety is a priority for US airlines and will always be,” he said. We will continue to work with all stakeholders to enable the new 5G service to co-exist peacefully with Aviation.
As part of the deal, which took place on January 3, AT&T and Verizon have agreed to create around 50 US airports to reduce the risk of interference and other measures to reduce the risk of interference for six months.
However, the agreement to postpone the widespread implementation of the technology to January 19 is due to expire. The airlines have demanded that 5G be implemented in all parts of the country, except at 2 mile (3.2 km) runway at some key airports.
“Immediate intervention is needed to prevent significant disruptions to airlines, carriers, supply chains and essential medical supplies,” Reuters reported in a letter.
He also warned that flight restrictions are not limited to poor weather conditions.
Many modern aircraft safety systems are considered to be a bigger problem than we know አምራቾች The aircraft manufacturers have informed us that there are huge ships that need to be in place indefinitely.
He urged the airline to work until it decides “5G deployment without any risk unless the walls are very close to airport runways.”
On Sunday, the FAA 5G C-Band announced the clearing of an estimated 45% of US commercial aircraft to provide low visibility at most airports since Wednesday.
The warning follows earlier warnings that MEDVAC helicopters or hospitals and rescue missions could be damaged by the technology.
According to a Bloomberg report, 5G interference with emergency radio helicopters could disrupt activity. 5G does not necessarily close the altimeter but may cause inaccurate readings.
