Shares of Gogo (GOGO +3.8%) climb after an FAA advisory panel recommends allowing the use of electronic devices during takeoff and landing, including WiFi data access. Current restrictions ban all consumer electronics use below 10K feet due to fears of interference with a plane's instrumentation, but the panel concluded that modern aircraft are well-shielded enough that the fears are unrealistic.

The advisory panel, however, recommended maintaining a restriction on laptops on the back of fears that their size and weight could be dangerous in a cabin emergency.
