Australian startup looking for 757/767 pilots

https://www.ch-aviation.com/portal/news/93727

Apparently an unnamed startup wants to start international flights from BNE as early as 2021. While I do hope to see this become reality (I mean you can never have enough 757s and 767s) I wonder about the timing. Time will tell how this goes I guess

Re: Airbus completes testing of self flying jet

I think we're really ignoring the point someone made above that this won't be used for single pilot ops in the forseeable future, instead to reduce workload for the TWO pilot cockpits. We're at least 20-30 years away from single pilot ops, and way more than that (if at all) from fully autonomous air...
