"Let me be clear: Regardless of the FCC proceeding, the FAA's

Source: Nicholas Sabatini, FAA associate
administrator for aviation safety, testifying before the House
aviation subcommittee Thursday about cell phone usage aboard
commercial passenger aircraft. The FCC says it may rescind its
rules governing such use. But until the communications technology
industry can come up with devices that don't interfere with
avionics, Sabatini said the ban will remain in place.
