FAA issues list of airports with 5G buffer

In accordance with a recent deal with Verizon and ATandamp;T, the FAA has released a list of 50 airports that will have a buffer from the telecommunication companies' 5G signals for six months.This list comes days after Verizon and ATandamp;T leaders agreed to push back the rollout of 5G service from January 5 to January 19. It was also agreed that the FAA would choose 50 airports that would be protected from the 5G signal until July 19.The agency utilized input from the aviation community to determine where the buffer zones should go to help reduce the risk of disruption. Traffic volume, the number of low-visibility days and geographic location were all factors.ATandamp;T and Verizon have turned off transmitters and made adjustments near the 50 airports to minimize 5G interference with "sensitive" aircraft instruments used in low-visibility landings.Notable airports on the list include John F. Kennedy International (JFK), Orlando International (MCO), Chicago Midway International (MDW), and Teterboro (TEB), among others.
