FAA Announces Path Forward on 5G
From the 17 June HAI Washington Update
Today, in the fourth FAA 5G Roundtable, it was announced that Verizon and AT&T have agreed to extend, by one year, certain voluntary mitigations that were set to expire on Jul. 5. In a statement that was released at the conclusion of the meeting, FAA lays out a retrofit schedule for Part 121 carriers. Radio altimeter manufactures are producing filters that reduce 5G interference, and operators have begun placing purchase orders. These filters will be necessary for thousands of aircraft in the US Part 121 fleet to retain access at many airports across the country. HAI, other aviation stakeholders, Verizon, and AT&T, as well as top officials at the FAA have been working together in the 5G Roundtables to coordinate on this path forward and other solutions necessary to maintain safety of the National Airspace System. HAI will continue to keep its members updated on the developments related to the 5G Roundtable discussions and provide details on the implications to the vertical lift community.
