ACTING FCC CHAIRWOMAN CLYBURN STATEMENT ON FAA’S PORTABLE

ELECTRONIC DEVICES AVIATION RULEMAKING COMMITTEE REPORT

““I am pleased that the FAA’s Portable Electronic Devices Aviation Rulemaking Committee has released
its report. Today, consumers expect to use their wireless devices everywhere, and at all times. Over the
past year, the FCC has taken a number of specific actions to improve the ability of consumers to use their
Wi-Fi-enabled devices aboard aircraft, and we are continuing to examine how best to promote consumers’
and businesses’ ability to use wireless devices both aboard aircraft and elsewhere.”
