We already have drones that can be flown in the middle east and controlled from a base in Las Vegas, how much longer do we must wait until we see this technology applied to passenger jets? The fact is that when you board a plane, you are at the mercy of the pilot, if that pilot suddenly snaps and decides to deliberately crash the plane into a mountain your chances of survival are 0.

I know that with remote controlled planes the possibility of this happening would still be there, because the plane would still be controlled by a human on the ground, however the pilot who would be controlling the plane would be monitored by someone else at all times.

Another good idea would be to program the plane to its destination just like how they program a cruise missile to hit it's target from hundreds of miles away.

The flight path, coordinates and every other piece of vital information would be programed onto the computer before takeoff.

So what do you think ATS? would your fear of flying be diminished if the plane was controlled by a computer instead of a human that could snap at anytime?

Personally mine would.

Also which option would you prefer be implemented?

A group of students (cant remember which uni) have already proven they can control cars AND planes by hacking!
Imagine some young kid taking control of a plane via his smartphone!

obviously the threat of hacking would be there, but the uplink used would need to have military grade levels of security...how many missiles have been hacked and reprogramed ? how many drones have been hacked?

Would they tell us if they were hacked?

Didn't Iran take down a drone?

Uh, no.

Computers are only as smart as the humans who program them. You're still at the mercy of someone who maybe did some "tweaking" of the software.

I have a full blown phobia of flying. I don't trust anyone. I hope I never have to get on another plane.

Er well you are about 14 years behind on this but good point.
George Bush was questioned almost instantly after 911 how the Government could stop terrorists from doing the same thing again..hijacking a plane and crashing it into God knows where.
He answered something like we already have a remote control on Boeing jets to which he was immediately cut off by those stood around him,i have seen the interview and know it exists but cannot find it.

Remote control is being built into every new plane computer

But they claim it is for our own good

Just pray you are not flying when they need a false flag

Bingo on the button Sir.
That is a Non disputable event that did in fact occur.
