If I'm on a plane, I want a human pilot physically flying it. I wouldn't want to fly across an ocean in a plane flown by a computer. How many would do it if the government told u it was safe, who knows. Probably about 51%.

Exactly 50 percent of them were caused by pilots.

And exactly 50% were caused by the planes themselves. So take that out and you have zero chance of crashing but then we would not have any planes.

Not really, only 22 percent were attributed to mechanical failure.

But this data doesn't show something. The technology coming out today could have a 90% chance of crashing without any pilot over the next 2-3 years.

sure, or it could have a 1% chance of crashing. Both are pure guesses. I happen to think at the rate unmanned flight technology is advancing it will be closer to 1%.

We can't look at the crash rates for the unmanned drones but they are piloted because the military will not release the real data.

What "real data" are you referring to?

And just what caused the other??

The "real data" I'm talking about is the military data, Do you really think the military is going to tell us all the times they crashed the drones??

One day it could happen, they ARE working on it but they will never give us the real data and hard numbers for a few years yet.

The statistic totaling 100% are in the links I posted. Other factors are(from memory)are weather sabotage and a few other things.

Sure in the developmental stages I am sure a lot of drones crashed...but I don't think anyone is suggesting we pack planes full of people during testing/development phases.

Regarding your last statement "One day it could happen, they ARE working on it" That is exactly what I have been saying throughout this thread. ...I'd be willing to bet there will be some kind of unmanned commercial Aviation(probably cargo) within 10 years.
