RE: crash of Germanwings Airbus.

Hello Yevgeny,

After the crash I made similar reflexions as yours:

  1. - Today more drone pilots are trained than plane pilots.
  2. - The planes piloted from the ground will appear soon.
  3. - That will not happen suddenly but progressively.

Here could be this progression:

  1. - There will be a pilot in the plane and a copilot on the ground.
  2. - There will be no pilot in the plane but the plane will be for freight only (because passengers could not like absence of pilots).
  3. - that will first be allowed for freight and from coast to coast (not flying over cities).
