IFALPA: Pirate radio frequently endangers flights
07/31/2007
Broadcasts from illegal radio stations near Israel's main international airport are jeopardizing flight safety by jamming communications between pilots and air traffic controllers, an international pilots' association said Tuesday. "In recent months the situation has worsened with the pirate transmissions frequently blocking air-to-ground communications," said a statement released by the London-based International Federation of Air Line Pilots' Associations. In the statement, IFALPA's regional representative Capt. Zvi Rosenberg said that in recent weeks the problem has become so severe that the airport had to cease operations for hours at time due to pirate radio broadcasts.
