New FAA Rules Allow Gadget Use During Takeoff

Posted: Updated:

(KCEN) -- New flying rules will allow airplane passengers to watch videos and read e-books during take off.

A ban on cell phone use will still remain intact. 

These new FAA regulations are expected to be put into place this week.

It's all because industry experts believe modern planes are much better protected against interference from signals emitted by electronic devices.

The new guidelines will go into effect sometime next year.
