#Aviation's Future Will Be More #Automated

Despite fears, aviation's future will be more automated.

In the wake of the Boeing 737 Max plane crashes, it's time to think about software and automated systems rather than human pilots.

Older commercial airliners, such as the Beechcraft 1900, which are still in service mostly as small commuter aircraft, often do not have any autopilot installed. By contrast, modern commercial airliners have automated systems that can augment or even replace pilots’ performance, managing engine power, controlling and navigating the aircraft, and in some cases, even completing landings.
