FAA Map Provides Guide on 5G Deployment

 - February 7, 2022, 1:51 PM

The FAA has rolled out an interactive online map to provide up-to-the-minute information on the impacts of 5G network transmitters at 87 airports. Map users can view information on specific aircraft types, airports, and runways to learn whether low-visibility landings are permitted or whether the potential for 5G interference exists.

According to NBAA senior director for air traffic services and infrastructure Heidi Williams, “The FAA created this resource in direct response to industry requests for updated and geographically-targeted information about the ongoing 5G deployment. But notams still remain the best source for detailed information about specific impacts to business aviation operations from possible 5G interference.”

Airports shown in green on the map are where 90 percent of the most common commercial aircraft types have either an approved radar altimeter or alternative means of compliance in place to operate with an active 5G network. Airports highlighted in yellow have between 50 to 89 percent for such approvals.
