Thread: Pilotless planes

Would anyone here fly on a plane that is automated? Why?
I certainly wouldn't.
I'm sick of peoples jobs being replaced with machines and computers.
Technology will be the end of us.

Yes but the pilot controls the auto-pilot, I mean a plane that doesn't have a pilot on board, that is flown by computers the whole time.

This is an interesting topic; to answer, no - I don't think I would. But, I've also learned to never say never. At the end of a day, year, or life - you have what you have...
But I'm curious: Except for transmission and reception of information failing, what are the major obstacles or differences between a pilot in the plane and a pilot on the ground that is flying the plane remotely...? I'm talking about automated pilots that sit in front of screens/instruments being fed the same info a pilot in the plane is receiving. We all know the military does this w/spy drones and such... I'm just curious about what the important differences are...
And I'm also ignoring "external" forces, say like a passenger gone insane/terrorist attack and such... opinions?

the last thing i want to hear from the cockpit speaker when the engine sucks up a bird is a woman's voice saying " RECALCULATING ROUTE!!"
