Hi there,

I wanted to know how many pilots did it take to fly a 747 30 years ago where computers were less complex. Was there a computer at all, and what did it involve?

(It's for my class project on artificial intelligence, thought it would be cool to include airplanes as an example of auto pilot, etc - simple AI).

Hi Eddieho,

Three crew were required to fly the early model 747s.
Two pilots and a flight engineers.
This covered the 747-100 through to the -300.
As for the computer part of your question, I'll let someone else answer that. Smile
