    WARNING!!!

    The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has warned that GPS signals could be unavailable or unreliable on June 9, 21, 23, 28, and 30 across the west coast. The signals are most likely to be disturbed primarily around California, although surrounding southwestern states and the northern corner of Mexico will also suffer some disruption. Although the disruptions will be more severe at higher altitudes, the signal could be scrambled as low as 15 meters (50 feet).

    As such, the FAA have advised pilots to avoid the areas in the statement at the mentioned times and instructed them to closely monitor their flight control systems.
