The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) issued new directives to aircraft operators, seeking to avoid potential flight safety issues resulting from interference with 5G radios operating in the C-Band.
It issued one directive for large cargo and passenger aeroplanes, and another for helicopters, both of which involve banning some operations requiring radio altimeter information in areas where C-Band broadband signals are present.
The FAA stated it continues to work closely with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and mobile network operators to ensure safe co-existence for aviation and 5G.
C-Band spectrum is a cornerstone of the 5G deployment strategies of Verizon and AT&T, which are relying on it to bridge a coverage gap with T-Mobile US.
