What is the problem
Significantly, after a technical failure of the FAA system, the movement of hundreds of planes in the United States stopped on Wednesday morning. Meanwhile, the FAA has asked airlines to suspend domestic flight departures until 9 a.m. Eastern Standard Time after a computer glitch. Airlines said they had already started to halt flights.
The FAA said, “The FAA is working to restore its Notice to Air Mission System. We do a final check and reload the system.
President Joe Biden was briefed by Transportation Minister Pete Buttigieg about the FAA system failure.
White House Press Secretary Karin Jean-Pierre said in a tweet: “There is currently no evidence of a cyberattack, but the President has directed DOT to fully investigate the cause. . The FAA will provide regularly updated information.”
The issue arose after a glitch in the FAA’s “NOTAM” (Notice to Air Mission) system. The system alerts pilots and other personnel to airspace issues and delays at other airport facilities nationwide.
According to flight tracker FlightAware, more than 1,200 flights operating in the United States, arriving or departing from the United States have been delayed while more than 100 flights have been canceled due to the problem.
