For now I will not participate in the first batch of passengers in a commercial DRONE flying across the Atlantic or Pacific oceans. I will wait until the technology of such passengers aircraft is certified very safe. In the very near future, such aircraft will replace pilot operated type and it will be fun for all of us. I know that a machine is a device that enable us to do work “more conveniently and quickly” than could be done by hand but under the supervision of HUMAN. Would such aircraft be more vulnerable to crash than the pilot operated type? Would hijackers take advantage of it since there is no pilot on board? Would it be fuel or battery operated?

A commercial drone would be a shift in the paradigm in the aviation industry. Would it be as large as boeing carrying at least 300 passengers? Would all airports be modified for landing of these pilotless aircrafts? Would it be faster or slow in speed than the pilot operated? Can it carry as much luggages as the current pilot operated type? All these questions should be answered by researchers, Engineers and investors before its operation starts in earnest. Your opinion?
