    It turns off all the radios (WiFi, Bluetooth, cellular) so you're compliant with federal and airline regulation.

    As LtKen says, it also allows you to turn off those things and still connect to the internet via WiFi.

    I have been using it to allow me to fly a plane. Wow, guess I was wrong. You can turn WIFI on while in airplane mode to connect up.

    It doesn't turn off wifi. It turns off cellular and bluetooth.

    Airplane mode does turn off wifi, however you can then turn wifi back on individually if you wish.

    Wifi is also required to be off on planes

    Quite a few airlines offer WIFI in-flight.

    Yeah, the actual rule is a function of the airline, but disabling all radio is the accepted general standard unless the airplane has inflight WiFi.

    Yes, but first you have to get the game Armageddon Squadron and use the linkup mode. ;)

    Seriously, there's a r/c helicopter coming out that can be controlled with an iPhone. It even has a camera so you can see what it sees. I hope they'll have it set up with the Android too. There's more info at http://ardrone.parrot.com/parrot-ar-drone/en

    That is funny.

    I just put mine in airplane mode and launched it across the room. It circled around the conference room and landed back on my desk.
