I'm not sure if I trust that enough. Good idea but I wouldn't put my life on it.

Haha, I agree. I understand pilot errors cause 50% of the accidents, but I'd rather have a guy in front because humans are able to make decisions no machines can.

Can you hijack a plane with no pilot? I guess in other ways you can haha.

 

But I think like many "driverless" cars these days, there is always a manual override, so I don't think they would be getting rid of pilots being on the plane any time soon.

If you can hijack a plane with no pilot that'll be even worse than having a pilot.
