Lives at risk from portable devices on North Sea copter flights

../.

"North Sea helicopter operators are classing portable electronic devices (PEDs) as a “clear and present danger” to their aircraft and passengers, an aviation expert said.

Graham Wildgoose, aviation adviser at Oil and Gas UK, said worldwide aviation had a real problem with lithium ion batteries.

Helicopter operators are “very concerned” about PEDs not being completely switched off or being charged while stored in hold luggage, he added."

He's probably got a point, and I just love how Mr Wildgoose's name suits his profession.
If it isn't broken, that doesn't mean you can't improve it. (Do three negatives make a positive ?)
