Using GoPro Hero 5 Session on a commercial flight?

Hi there,

 

So for the majority of the next two months, I am going to be flying through lots of different airports and I thought it would be interesting to catch the take-off's and landings from each airport and possibly some timelapses of the flights as well. I know the hero 5 session is wi-fi enabled and so was wondering if this will mean I can't use it during a flight on a commercial airline.

 

I tried connecting my phone to the camera with the phone in flight mode and this worked fine however I was hoping someone would know for definite whether or not I can use the GoPro on the plane.

 

Thanks in advance

Hi @toughdawn2317

 

As a general advise by most airlines, mobile devices should be turned off or switched to airplane mode.

 

This still depends on the specific airline you are flying with.

 

I have found this article online that may come handy: https://www.quora.com/Why-are-passengers-asked-to-switch-off-all-electronic-devices-before-takeoff-a...

 

 

Thanks!
