  2. Considering the fact of increased number of air crashes and number of air flight Iris will provide far more accurate and effecient tool for air traffic control to guide safely towards destination ☺👍

  3. increasing number of air flights is not good, but bringing in 5G is great, actually its better than great. I'm looking forward to this but also not super happy with the amount of air traffic we have.
