The FAA made the decision to pause all domestic departures until 9 a.m. Eastern standard time on Wednesday.
A statement was made by the authority later on in the day claiming an engineer “replaced one file with another” the official said and that it was “an honest mistake”. FAA officials and the Pentagon worked feverishly behind the scenes using backdoor software keys provided by Lockheed Martin, Boeing and Airbus to hack into the orange and black boxes of the grounded planes.
For those of you who are not aware of what an orange box or black box is, one records all activity in the cockpit and can be activated remotely in the case of an issue with the pilots. The other reports back to the FAA with tail numbers, flight plans, and current location.
While *NOTAM*, or the “Notice to All Air Missions” system is responsible for sending out flight hazards and Real-time restrictions to pilots. The FAA announced there is no evidence of a cyberattack and services of NOTAM.
The FAA’s services have been restored, without any backdoor access to your aircraft and your banking system.
