Since two days, Air India has cancelled the flights that travel U.S, and Japan Airlines too have cancelled the same, due to the broader roll out of 5G in some parts of United States. Now, we have given a deep elucidation why 5G is leading to cancellation of flights.
5G roll out leads to cancellation of flights to U.S
Influence of 5G on aviation :
United Airlines said that the current 5G rppl out plan in the U.S will have a noxious impact on aviation. The US based airline explained that, when deployed next to runways, the 5G signals could interfere with the key safety equipment that pilots rely on to take off and land in inclement weather.
Firstly, C-band airwaves reportedly interfere with altimeters in aircraft. The pilots can get correct altitude readings on the altimeter and it is important for landings in testing conditions like limited visibility. United States is the only country where airlines are getting affected, but 5G has been rolled out in 40 countries. One reason that only US facing the issue is the utilization of C-band.
Airlines want to ensure the safe deployment of 5G technology around airports. According to the statements given by United Airlines, other countries’ directorates have framed policies successfully to ensure the safe deployment of 5G technology and they are seeking the same from the government of US. The antennas are sloped slightly in France, so that there is limited interference with the aircraft.
France has tilted the antennas around 17 of its major airports to lessen aviation troubles around 5G. Due to the airlines concern, the two major US telecom carriers have adjourned 5G rool out in certain areas. So, the issue has to be resolved by the authorities and telecom operators.
