New FAA Rules are a Big Win for Indie Authors


Have you ever wondered if your electronic device really interferes with an aircraft’s flight equipment?

The Babelcube team is excited to learn that ebooks can be read safely throughout a passenger’s time on a plane. Soon electronic devices will not need to be turned off, providing they are in “airplane mode.” This eliminates one of biggest hurdles some readers had to switching from paper books to ebooks. We expect that this change will accelerate the already rapid adoption of ebooks.

A few days ago the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) announced that electronic devices can be kept on for uses such as reading ebooks, playing games, and listening to music. Texting and voice calls will remain prohibited. Airlines are expected to review the new guidelines and submit their plans shortly. The industry expects that multiple airlines will allow eBooks to be read at any point in the flight as early as the end of 2013.

You can watch the FAA announcement here.

While the new rules are for United States airlines, the European Aviation Safety Agency participated in the FAA’s review and plans to consider amending their regulations for electronic devices upon an aircraft.

  1. This is good news as we writers and authors can now enjoy reading during the flight. As I always miss reading while traveling via flight. As I provide custom thesis writing services online, so I need to keep myself updated with the latest information and all the necessary information regarding thesis writing to help students with perfection.

  2. This news excites me because in the past I miss lots of my work during the flight. I am working as an academic writer and provides the best dissertation writing services to students. Dissertation writing involves lots of in detail research. I need to read lots of eBooks, articles, and information on the internet. But now writers and authors can easily enjoy reading during the flight.

  4. In every institute, ethics is taught in order to make students understand how important it is to stay ethical in life. You cannot copy anyone else’s work and make it yours! Plagiarism was never accepted warmly in any field. Even today, lots of laws are made and authorities follow these laws very strictly. If a student is found submitting plagiarized work, he gets expelled from the institution and his whole life gets doomed. When you are hiring finance assignment writing help, hire someone who considers plagiarism as a vice like others. In many institutes, you will find Academic Integrity Committees. If they found you guilty, nothing will happen to your finance assignment help, but you may face a lot of odd consequences.
