This thread will be closed soon, so I’ll just speculate a bit. I’ve always wondered about the theory of a remote hijacking using the aircraft’s computers. There’s no evidence of that of course, but parts of it make sense. The precise course changes, potentially incapacitated crew, etc. Just a thoug...Jump to post
I didnt read the full thread and didn't see it at first glance but please accept my apologies if that has been mentioned before... Don't forget that AF-KLM just got €10B from their governments, partly justified in the mouth of France's finance minister B. le Maire by the need to support the entire a...Jump to post
There are no next steps because it's an absurd idea that will never go anywhere. It doesn't make any geometric sense for cities.

Over the recent months, whilst many players have demonstrated the flying capabilities of future air mobility vehicles, numerous reports have shown that : a) The flying public is not necessary ready to fly, much less in autonomous air taxis and b) The vertiports/landing infrastructure are likely to b...Jump to post

Yes. We will se atonomous airliners. We will accept the idea very quickly once we see traffic getting safer and faster with autonomous cars in the next decade. Is that the order? We have never seen a kid run after a ball in front of an airplane flying or a man crossing an airway while looking at hi...Jump to post
Never will happen. passenger would never go for it. That's indeed the main and probably only obstacle... Otis had the technology to make elevators fully automated 40 years before they introduced it... why? Because humans wouldn't go for it. Train one cabin crew for emergency flight situations (or l...Jump to post
