what is the whole matter
Significantly, after a technical fault in the FAA’s system, the movement of hundreds of aircraft in the US came to a standstill on Wednesday morning. Meanwhile, the FAA has asked airlines to suspend domestic flight departures until 9 a.m. Eastern Standard Time after a computer system glitch. Airlines said that they have already started stopping flights.
The FAA said, “The FAA is working to restore its ‘Notice to Air Mission System’. We are doing a final verification check and reloading the system.
President Joe Biden has been informed by Transportation Minister Pete Buttigieg about the fault in the FAA system.
White House Press Secretary Karin Jean-Pierre said in a tweet, “There is currently no evidence of a cyberattack, but the President directed DOT to conduct a full investigation into the cause. The FAA will provide regularly updated information.”
The glitch followed a glitch in the FAA’s ‘NOTAM’ (Notice to Air Mission) system. The system alerts pilots and other personnel at airports across the country about airspace issues and other facility delays.
According to flight tracker FlightAware, more than 1,200 flights operating within the US, arriving in or departing from the US were delayed while more than 100 flights were canceled due to the glitch.
