Gadgets could take to the skies in Europe too, following U.S. rule change

Finally! Now that the FAA over in the U.S. has greenlit the use of electronic devices during all flight stages, the same may soon happen in Europe.

According to a report in The Guardian on Friday, the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) is set to take the matter to European regulators, with the hope of a decision being made within months. As in the U.S., each airline would need to seek permission individually, proving that its aircraft won’t be affected by the use of phones (with the cellular component turned off), tablets, e-readers and so forth.
