If you like to pass the time playing minesweeper, or checking your Facebook updates while piloting a 900,000 pound aircraft 400 mph, you won’t like the latest FAA decision. The agency has asked airlines to create policies to minimize cockpit distractions, including pilots’ use of personal electronic devices. “There is no room for distraction when your job is to get people safely to their destinations,” said DOT Secretary Ray LaHood. “The traveling public expects professional pilots to focus on flying and on safety at all times.”
