AT&T and Verizon Communications have dismissed appeals by the US aviation authority to delay the introduction of 5G networks amid concerns the 5G network could interfere with aircraft electronics.

US Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) chief Steve Dickson called for a halt to the 5G rollout, stating it would be “an irresponsible abdication of the operating control required to deploy world-class and globally competitive communications networks.

According to Reuters the Aerospace Industries Association, International Air Transport Association, Regional Airline Association and others released a statement that, “Starting Wednesday, the disruptions to our country’s aviation system are going to be incredibly challenging, especially at a time when the industry is currently experiencing COVID-related operational issues. ”

5G Networks Could Pose a ‘Major Risk’ to  Airplane Radar and Weather Prediction

In November 2020 a  white paper by the RTCA, a private-public aviation partnership that advises the Federal Aviation Administration, warns that 5G technologies could pose a “major risk…of harmful interference” to radar on business jets and other civilian aircraft.

If 5G telecommunications systems are permitted to use that frequency band, said the report, “the risk is widespread and has the potential for broad impacts to aviation operations in the US, including the possibility of catastrophic failures leading to multiple fatalities, in the absence of appropriate mitigations.” Read more at 5G Networks Could Pose a ‘Major Risk’ to Your Airplane’s Radar 

In 2019, US Senators  sent a letter urging the FCC to adopt an emission limit recommended by NOAA and NASA citing an internal Navy report that stated the 5G frequencies would probably degrade Naval  weather and ocean models, resulting in increased risk in Safety of Flight and Safety of Navigation, and degraded Battlespace Awareness for tactical / operational advantage. In November 2019, US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper urged the FCC to restrict the 5G spectrum citing  impacts to “national security, civil service, and the economic benefit of the nation” due to the potential for widespread disruption to GPS services.

5G will increase ambient levels of wireless radiofrequency radiation. Peer-reviewed research has demonstrated a myriad of adverse effects from wireless radiofrequency radiation including increased brain cancer, DNA damage, oxidative stress, immune dysfunction,  altered brain development, damaged reproduction, sleep changes, hyperactivity, and memory damage. (RESEARCH HERE)

Thousands of doctors and scientists are calling to halt 5G because of the increase in radiofrequency radiation- a new kind of environmental pollution. (DOCTORS & SCIENTISTS HERE, Read and download letter from Dr. Davis on the health and environmental effects of 5G)
