Kreindler Attorney Erin Applebaum Interviewed for Corporate Crime Reporter on the Risks of 5G on Corporate Airlines
March 22, 2022
Kreindler aviation attorney Erin Applebaum was interviewed by the Corporate Crime Reporter for their article “Risks 5G Poses to Commercial Airlines.” Verizon and AT&T are rolling out 5G wireless service on a radio spectrum called the C-band in a number of major U.S. cities.
Applebaum answers questions regarding the risk these 5G transmitters pose to commercial passenger airlines and how the wireless signals could also potentially interfere with the safe flight of EMS Emergency Medical aircraft.
5G signals, while lucrative to the telecom industry, pose catastrophic safety risks to the U.S. commercial aviation fleet. When pilots land in poor weather conditions, they rely on the assistance of a highly-sensitive instrument called the radio altimeter. The altimeters tell the plane how far it is off the ground.
