Default Who goes "Pilot-less" first?

Regional or Mainline?

Airbus Says It Has The Technology To Fly Planes With No Pilots, But The Challenge Will Be Convincing People To Get On Them

By Bill Bostock, Business Insider. "Airbus has developed technology to fly passenger jets with no pilots, and is ready to deploy it today, according to one of its top executives. But the company knows that autonomous commercial flight remains a distant prospect because of barriers which are human, rather than technical."

It's coming. This probably won't be a viable career for my 5 year old.

Envoy. Pilots flow to AA to become flight attendants, because their management hates them so much.

In real life, it would take one demonstration of a theoretical radio-controlled 9/11 to keep this from ever happening.

Probably cargo, but after the GPS debacle last week I wouldnít worry too much about pilotless airplanes.

Name one complex computer system that behaves exactly as instructed, Iíll wait.

How will a pilotless plane participate in the ATC system?
What would you in the event of a systems failure?
What about an event like a loss of GPS like the CRJ has been experiencing?

Pilots use to fly planes, more and more they are becoming automation managers, someone is going to continue to have to manage the automation. Itís frequently does weird things and will continue to do so. Iím not worried.
