Study: Cell phones may cause air risk

The latest study shows that electronic activity from mobile phones could create more interference to an aircraft’s navigation systems than previously thought.The research was conducted by researchers at the Carnegie Mellon University in the U.S.

The scientists found that one to four mobile phone calls are made, on average, during a commercial flight in the northeast of the U.S. and that calls made during critical flight stages could lead to accidents. If true, the findings may call into question airline plans to install jets with the ability to use mobile networks.
