WIA Statement on New FAA 5G Directives

ARLINGTON, Va. – Please attribute the following statement to WIA President and CEO, Jonathan Adelstein. 

“The wireless industry is going above and beyond in its voluntary mitigation efforts to address unfounded concerns about aviation safety. After an extensive review process, the FCC found that 5G can operate safely in the C-band—a finding reinforced by real-world deployments and testing across the globe. We agree with the FAA’s contention that the expansion of 5G and safe aviation can co-exist and will continue to work with them toward that goal.”
