Newsweek? I don't read Newsweek. And to answer the previous question my degree is Physics, with a post graduate degree in Aviation Technology, with an ATP, a total of 18000+ hrs. Happy now?

Iíve been prepping for my career transition to HVAC/plumbing. Iím petrified that I will be out of a job. Iím now getting concerned that the robots will be able to replace me there too.

Ah! Yes, a Physics degree doesnít surprise me. A very good degree for sure, but based on theory.

Engineering is the real world practical application of physics. I have an engineering degree, and worked in aerospace for a few years (part of that was for an OEM engine manufacturer, and the rest for a contractor).

Iím in my early 40s now, and with what I have experienced with my previous background I have zero concerns about pilot less aircraft in my career lifetime.

When pilot-less happens it would start in freight. No fiery crash with seats full of passengers, just freight lost and that is replaceable. I think the greater threat to freight pilots is the world where you go online to order a product but instead of the company shipping that product you download a single use license to print the product on your 3D printer. That tech exists now and doesn't require coordination with the airspace system and complete security of data to prevent digital hijacking of a plane. Could also severely reduce trucking fleets.

About half. I am trying to point out the futility of worrying about a problem that is (1) out of any of our control, and (2) probably so far into the future that we'll be buried when it happens. The serious half is that the relentless march of technology changes the world in ways most of us can't imagine until we are displaced.

Auto parts are being 3D printed today. There is discussion of 3D printed food. Many of the things we buy and ship today could be printed by downloading a single use file of instructions for the printer. The price of the printers is coming down rapidly like all new tech does and soon they can be affordable enough to be in many homes and businesses.

When trains run across the country unmanned or ships across the sea, Iíll be worried. Not gonna happen in our careers, and just make sure your kids donít follow down this same path clown car show of a career.
