    ...I wonder how much it will cost the tax payers to conduct this study?? I guess the "regulator" has spent more on less before!!

    They need to use common sense here....or is there no common sense?

    Really a single pilot 777 freighter?....What are they thinking.......the cheapest thing in an aircraft has always been the pilot;)

    ...I can only see real value in automation for the higher risk jobs. Ag, fire bombing, external load etc. A human life should still be considered priceless!! Maybe, the "regulator" should get out of the "tombstone" mentality.

    A triple 7 is not a Cessna 150. If there is an emergency you need two level heads to handle it even though your flying boxes. Not to mention if the worst happens and the aircraft goes down in populated area. Might excite a couple of Aviation Injury Lawyers, the lack of common sense astounds me.

    The whole thing is stupid, yet they think nothing of spending tax dollars to investigate if it is stupid.......and it is stupid as stupid gets

    DRAIN THE SWAMP!!

    Getting rid of a pilot is really cutting the layers of safety to the bone.

    ... I'm sure the "regulator" will build in the computer algorithms to cover the safety gaps. Management needs their high three.

    How well will the single pilot handle an emergency?

    ... sounds like there may be some enhanced training needed. Can the monitor person on the ground access the affected system? It would be a neat trick to see a circuit breaker being remotely pulled from the ground station. Wonder which lobby group will win out??

    I suppose if the human pilot becomes incapacitated the system would have to "take over" and land the plane!
