Can We Power on Mobile Devices on the Plane in Fly Mode?

It has been unequivocally proven that using cell phones or other portable devices on the plane will produce electromagnetic interference, which may greatly lead to failures of aeronautical navigation equipment and automatic pilot system. It is very dangerous to aviation safety. But is it legal to use a phone in Fly Mode on the airplane?

After switching to Fly Mode, mobile users can still check address book, read existing messages, listen to the music, play offline games or watch videos without signal interrupting, which is also able to save some power. But it is controversial whether it is permissible to use an electronic gadget on the plane in Fly Mode, because there is no obvious evidence to prove that there is completely no any single at all in Fly Mode. So please first follow the instruction and ask for the permission of the on-site air hostess or other working staff on the plane.

Digiarty Software does not advocate ripping copy-protected DVDs for any commercial purpose and suggests referring to the DVD copyright laws in your countries before doing so. Still have question on ripping DVD for playing on the plane/boat/train? Please feel free to Mail Us >>
