Automation is growing in many aspects of aviation, but beyond that, fully autonomous operations are being considered for new types of aircraft, including eVTOL air taxis. Technology including advanced software, sensors, automated communications, and artificial intelligence are all part of a complex matrix being developed to make this approach safe. The major benefit is significant cost savings for operators, and that should make new types of air service commercially viable. FutureFlight learned how this is all coming together from independent expert Sergio Cecutta.
