Selfies Caused A Deadly Plane Crash

How is it NOT against regulations to take a selfie in the cockpit of a plane? Especially when you are the one flying the damn thing?

As a pilot flying a Cessna 150K aircraft under general aviation rules, Singh was not violating Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations by taking photos in the cockpit. Nevertheless, investigators concluded in their report, "It is likely that cell phone use during the accident flight distracted the pilot and contributed to the development of spatial disorientation and subsequent loss of control."
