Reportedly, U.S. regulators are warning that 5G wireless operations could affect radio altimeters in most Boeing (BA) 737 aircraft and impact crew workload and airplane landings. The Federal Aviation Administration’s directive affects Boeing’s 737s, except its 200 and 200-c series, the Federal Register notice informed. Telecommunications networks are rolling out next-generation 5G systems that the FAA has previously warned could impact sensitive airplane electronics such as radio altimeters.
Regulators determined that “during the approach, landings, and go-arounds, as a result of this interference, certain airplane systems may not properly function. Increased light crew workload while on approach with the flight director, autothrottle, or autopilot engaged, which could result in a reduced ability of the flight crew to maintain safe flight and landing of the airplane,” the FAA said in the notice.
