<p>And that, said the scientists, could not surprisingly lead to catastrophic results.</p>
<p>The researchers looked at three sets of devices and apps that private pilots commonly use – the Appareo Stratus 2 receiver using the ForeFlight app; the Garmin GDL 39 receiver with the Garmin Pilot app; and the SageTech Clarity CL01 with the WingX Pro7 app. <a href="http://channeleye.co.uk/planes-subject-to-hack-attack/" class="read_more">more&#187;</a></p><div class="feedflare">
