Reply To: Pilotless Aeroplanes.Back to Forum
If man can go to moon and back by mostly remote control, flying airplane by remote is nothing compared to that. As many readers indicated, most airplanes are on autopilot mode for more than 90% of the flying time. The take off and landing are two activities that passengers need to be comfortable with.
I believe in next 10-15 years, we will see just one pilot only for emergencies, he may also double up as cabin crew supervisor!
