    No computer will pull up when another computer tells it ...that is not a mountain.

    I would. And if anything goes wrong, I woupd land the plane myself, easily, with a smile on my face. And then make out with the hottest of the stewardesses on top of the disembarking stairs, as rain falls around us.

    I fly camera drones for a hobby and they're ALL made in China.
    No U.S. company makes a consumer drone.

    Goto Best Buy and find a drone made in the USA

    When I was a kid in the 1950's there were major airline accidents every year and they sold life insurance in vending machines at all airports.
    Most of these accident were pilot error and that has all but disappeared now that the flights have mainly been taken out of human pilot's hands.

    When was the last airliner crash you heard about in the U.S.?


    You can trust your life to the drunk pilot who just broke up with his GF.......I'll trust the drone!

    Yeah, I would fly a pilotless plane, and probably will.

    I'd like there to be humans in cockpits, just in case, but I suspect that is more superstition than fact-based need.

    Who knows where this will all end up but artificial intelligence (AI) is so much better than human intelligence ....at specific tasks....that I can see a day where computer diagnoses of medical problems will be much more accurate that human guesses.

    Get the humans out of the cockpit! (They're there just to monitor now)
    The military is already headed in this direction.

    My wife just made that good point. lol

    Still, I'd argue that the number of accidents caused by human error outweigh the few instances of required human intervention saving the day.

    Why not?

    Of course I would.

    I would probably trust it more....I know the computer didn't get drunk the night before.
