Wasn't there a medical helo accident not too long ago where the pilot's text messages during his duty shift were part of the NTSB report?
Oh yea. Personal devices have been on the NTSB’s s4!t list for more than 10 years now.

AA and Southwest have pushed back to March 2020 now. Assuming no further delays, they'll have been grounded nearly an entire year.
We’re not going to Mars, are we.

Accountants and the boards need for immediate shareholder value wrecked innovation.
