Will Wednesday’s 5G Rollout Ground Planes or Cause Them to Fall From the Sky?

the 5G rollout has been postponed twice already. January 19 is the rollout day for the much touted 5G capability for cellphones. Ten of the largest Commercial airline companies sent a letter to Buttigieg, the FAA, and anyone else who would listen to advise them that the deployment of 5G could impact air travel in a major way with more disruptions. The CEOs of airlines say that the 5G must not be deployed within 2 miles of airports. Some foreign companies have cancelled flights to the US over the new system. 5G is a C-band system that supposedy makes cellphones much more powerful, but could disrupt sensitive airplane systems.

Despite the recent collaboration and data sharing between the telecommunications industry, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the aviation industry, commercial aviation in the United States is facing major disruption of the traveling and shipping public based on our evaluation of the data and discussions that have been ongoing to resolve the issue of how best to deploy 5G ‘C-band’ in a safe manner around U.S. airports…

We further ask that the FAA immediately identify those base stations closest to key airport runways that need to be addressed to ensure safety and avoid disruption in a manner that is narrowly focused and consistent with the agreement established on January 3, 2022.

Immediate intervention is needed to avoid significant operational disruption to air passengers, shippers, supply chain and delivery of needed medical supplies. The harm that will result from deployment on January 19 is substantially worse than we originally anticipated…

They warned that the 5G wireless technology could effectively leave thousands of passengers grounded and leave tens of thousands more stranded overseas.

FAA and other aviation officials fear that the use of the C-band spectrum for 5G wireless services could interfere with sensitive aircraft electronics, disrupt flights, and result in some diversions.

The Epoch Times

Specifically, some commerical carriers are concerned about the Boeing 777 being affected, so Japan, UAE, and ANA, have cancelled flights to several US airports. LAX, JFK and Washington DC will not be affected. IF the airlines can switch the flights to a 787 the flights will resume. AT&T and Verizon have agreed to “defer” turning on some of their towers that are near airports.

Will this turn out to be an unfounded worry? We can hope so. The thought of stranding passengers overseas, cancelling yet even more flights after the debacle over weather this winter is not a good scenario. Well find out tomorrow.
