Evil Electronics

The College of Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University have conducted a study on one of Pete's and my favourite gripes whilst flying :- the use of portable electronic equipment. Now I can't claim to have lots of Pilot-Officer chummies like Pete, but the one guy I DO know that flies a 'coptor uses his mobile phone whilst in the air, and Pete tells me that this is not unusual. So are smaller planes and helicopters safer because they are less reliant on auto-landing doo-dads and point-to-point flangewidgets?

I dunno, but I still want to gripe about being told to turn off the PSP during takeoff...
