Maybe 5 years ago, if you asked someone if they’d agree to board a drone, they would likely refuse. He might even think it’s crazy, but not anymore. With all the training, safety measures, and precautions that are taken into consideration in the field of aviation, however, without a doubt, accidents do occur, and human error is inevitable no matter how we try to avoid it. But technology and the development witnessed by our time have solved many of the problems and gaps that we suffer from in many areas of life. The field of aircraft is not excluded from it.
unpiloted planes have been taken in earnest, and we consider this step a big leap. So what’s new here?
Reliable Robots and Xwing are two startups in the Gulf region that are building aircraft that can fly on their own unpiloted planes, Instead of building new aircraft, both companies have modified Cessna Grand Caravans. Airplanes can fly autonomously while a remote operator monitors the flight, and only takes control if needed. Both companies said they are working with major logistics companies to deliver cargo as an initial draw or as a trial run for the move, once approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Xwing tried it out in action, as a plane was taken on a test flight and the pilot did not touch the controls, not even once, and it went well.
