HAI Presents on Dangers of 5G Interference at FAA Industry Day HAI participated in the FAA’s 5G Radar Altimeter Industry Stakeholder Forum on Thursday, Jul. 1. HAI and other aviation industry stakeholders at the forum officially presented to the FAA, FCC, Department of Defense, and Department of Transportation to convey the importance of preserving the integrity of radar altimeters in aircraft. Helicopter operations are conducted at low altitudes, in congested urban environments, over mountainous terrain, and in adverse weather conditions. Operators rely on accurate and reliable radar altimeter data for air ambulance, firefighting, heavy lift, search and rescue, and countless other missions. Loss or erroneous radar altimeter data, whether detected or undetected, compromises the safety of the aircraft and puts flight crews at risk. HAI is grateful for the opportunity to educate key industry stakeholders on the severity of this issue. Members can view a copy of the presentation here. HAI Government Affairs is co-chairing an industry coalition working group on radar altimeter interference. HAI will continue to pursue spectrum solutions that will protect the vertical lift industry.
