What do you think Commercial Aviation will be like in the future?

How soon will it be before computers fly planes with no pilot? Personally, I would rather fly on an aircraft that is piloted by a human rather than a computer. Some computer aid is fine (like it is now), but I really hope that we will never have to fly on fully computerized aircraft in our lifetimes. Then again, computers in the future might become more accurate and safer than a pilot right now. But currently, I wouldn't feel comfortable, but who knows, the future may change my mind.

Share your thoughts (PEACEFULLY!).

Kind regards

We'll have personal teleportation devices on our belts and will chuckle about how the management of airlines failed to foresee the changing trends in travel.
Airports will first change radically when Embraer develops a VTOL plane. The decrease in necessary real estate at airports (due to the obsolesence of runways) will allow for a boom in low budget housing construction.
The VTOL planes will themselves become outmoded, and the airport terminals will be bulldozed too. In desperation, Delta's CEO, a clone of the current Uncle Leo, will attempt to find a niche for his airline in the cropdusting business. The replacement of genetically modified food with simple nutrient-giving pills will ruin that fantasy. Yes, aviation as we know it will be history, pursued only by a few quirky preservationists with gleaming MD-11s in their garages.
