Stephen Theron Scary- Pilotless plane

Don't think so. Pilot's either in the plane or using remote control on the ground. Pilot in the plane has more accountability, it's his life too. I will not be flying with an empty cockpit. What is the point of a so called "pilotless plane". Unlike a ground moving vehicle they can't just stop and wait.???????????????

Wolfgang Grulke RE: Scary- Pilotless plane

The technology of pilot-less drones has come a long way, NASA's new developments and breakthroughs on small jets by firms such as Bombardier already make all this feasible, if still very expensive.

Anyone who travels through the US airport-hubs nightmare regularly will immediately see the value of this new model for the passenger.

Have a read of one of our older MindBullets titled "Hertz voted the world's #1 airline" and see the links to a few books on this subject.

Anton Musgrave Are we changing fast enough?

Trading DNA on EBay? A scary prospect but that and other equally daunting prospects may challenge us in the years ahead as we approach what some already call an 'extreme future'. Extreme or not, it will be very different. Ask the politicians in North Africa! My question is how rapidly are we as individuals and as corporations embracing change and developing our ability and in fact passion for change? Is our own rate of change slower than the pace of change around us? if so, how long will it be before we are faced with irrelevance?

Someone said only yesterday that suddenly, innovation is the safe business option! To change is less risky than doing nothing...something we have been advocating for years!

Anton Musgrave Can we forecast the future?

We have never believed in forecasting or predicting. The speed and nature of the change around the world, affecting everyone and all industries, suggests that all one can do is understand the forces shaping our future and develop an intuitive feel for the options and opportunities that these may create. And then ensure that one's business is capable, in every way, to respond fast and with impact!
