Most of the "experts" said that SpaceX would never work or is decades off.

All you need is one company to interrupt the status quo and the entire industry shifts, sometimes very quickly.

There are plans for large cargo aircraft with a single pilot and other plans for unmanned buddy aircraft. Unmanned large aircraft will follow then single pilot large passenger aircraft eventually be approved.

It will happen. The technology is easy. The procedures are easy. The software is not necessarily easy, but known.

Most modern air carrier aircraft are already built as unmanned capable with minimal upgrade required.

Once a single airline makes single pilot and/or unmanned systems work, the rest will follow.
