A system and/or method is/are provided which reduces the likelihood of air vehicles being utilized by terrorists as weapons. In certain embodiments, when it is determined that the air vehicle is about to hit a designated structure (e.g., high-rise office building or apartment building, national monument, and/or government building), a controller automatically takes control of the air vehicle away from the pilot(s) and causes an automatic computerized pilot (auto-pilot) to take over control of the air vehicle and causes it to land at a selected airport and/or runway.

Here's a poignant question .
With 9/11 behind us, how far back has 9/11 pushed the development of 400mph flying personal vehicles?
They've built some or have them on the drawing board.
Will we now never see streams of them going toward the local megatropolis out of fear of what terrorist might do w/ them?
