FAA Prohibits Some Planes From Landing At Syracuse Hancock Due To 5G

Syracuse, N.Y. - Syracuse Hancock International Airport has been put on a list of airports being effected by the rollout of 5G cellular service.

The Syracuse Regional Airport Authority, in statement today, said that the FAA is prohibiting planes from landing at Hancock in low-visibility conditions because of worries that new 5G cellular signals will interfere with electronics on some aircraft.

Low visibility is defined as less than a 200-foot ceiling and less than 1,800 feet 'runway visual range' which is how far down the runway a pilot can see surface markings.

These safety restrictions could affect flight schedules especially during bad weather conditions.
