Petition Challenges FAA On Gadgets
LOS ANGELES, (UPI) – Ex-Star Trek actor George Takei said he is “put off” by U.S. regulations forbidding air travelers from keeping gadgets turned on during liftoffs and landings.
Takei, who played Sulu in the original cast of “Star Trek,” has collected 17,000 signatures on a petition he plans to submit to the Federal Aviation Administration on behalf of people fed up with having to turn off electronic devices during those anxiety-provoking takeoff and landing maneuvers.
“I suspect I’m not alone in feeling put off,” Takei”s petition says.
The petition was posted in early December on Change.org, the Los Angeles Times reported Monday.
In August, the FAA said it would study the use of electronic devices during flights.
