Will CAP gear itself to the keyboard warriors of tomorrow?Cadets are already being trained with the STEM kits and cadets can join CAP's sUAS program - I'm in a sUAS course now with a bunch of cadets.
Quote from: Capt Thompson on August 28, 2020, 02:51:13 pmIf we did eventually go to autonomous aircraft, I would think an observer/programmer wouldn't be enough to satisfy the FAA? I would think that person would need the ability to take manual control and pilot the vehicle should something go wrong, so in that case there would still be just as big a need for pilots no?
Quote from: Spam on August 28, 2020, 03:28:06 pmWith something on the order of five fatalities and a number of non fatal automated vehicle mishaps already, the driverless car experience is to my mind a giant and somewhat fatal beta test of a still to be perfected system. As a guy with 30 years working in aerospace I don't consider the fielding of driverless cars to be a good model for aviation to follow. I would hate to be considered part of that Darwinistic process myself, and while I've accepted personal risk (aircraft carrier ops, night ops, etc.) in aircraft test, my family has NOT. Noting the pilotless Caravan in that video on approach over a muni airport and streets... if my family were killed by someone else's immature, prematurely fielded driverless tech, I would leave the funeral and head after the CEOs, engineers and regulators that were liable for aiming and releasing that immature tech at my family.
