Question
Dear Ismar

Are DVD/VCD/CD Player with TV Set/Monitor on commercial flights i.e. Local and International facility provided by aircraft carriers ?. viz Lufthansa, Cathay Pacific, Delta airlines, Jet airways, British airways,Singapore airlines,Qatar Airways etc.

The flight passengers on board will be able to watch movies or any other entertainment programs on the TV Monitor set interfaced with DVD/VCD/CD Player. This entertainment program/s on the plane will be operated by the air carrier staff and not by the passengers.
by the Aircraft carrier

Can these cause disturbances to the electronics navigation instruments panels within the plane ?. If yes what type of problems can happen ?.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Hi Prashant,
Sorry for delay, but I do have very demanding schedule.
It is generally the fact that each electronic device like TV or VCR do produce electro-magnetic waves as they operate. Now the level of EM that cause deviations within navigational instruments, that could be little tricky to determine. TV/VCR and other electronic equipment that are installed in airliners do have to be tested rigorously by manufacturer to establish the fact that those models of TV/VCR or other electronic equipment do not cause deviation within navigational equipment.
