    A robot pilot is learning to fly. It has passed its pilot’s test and flown its first plane, but it has also had its first mishap too.
    Unlike a traditional autopilot, the ROBOpilot Unmanned Aircraft Conversion System literally takes the controls, pressing on foot pedals and handling the yoke using robotic arms. It reads the dials and meters with a computer vision system.


    The robot can take off, follow a flight plan and land without human intervention. ROBOpilot is a drop-in system meaning that the pilot’s seat is removed and replaced with the robot.


    ROBOpilot has passed the Federal Aviation Administration’s Practical Test for piloting light aircraft and carried out its first flight on August 9 in Utah. A few weeks later it also had its first incident where the robot was damaged, although the extent of the damage is not known.


    The system was developed by US-based DZYNE Technologies as an easy way to make any aircraft autonomous. At present, turning an aircraft into a drone can be lengthy and expensive.
    A recent conversion of US military F-16 fighter jets into drones cost more than a million dollars each. ROBOpilot can be inserted into any aircraft and just as easily removed afterwards to return it to human-controlled operation.

    An American Airlines mechanic was arrested Thursday on a sabotage charge accusing him of disabling a navigation system on a flight with 150 people aboard before it was scheduled to take off from Miami International Airport earlier this summer.
    The reason, according to a criminal complaint affidavit filed in Miami federal court: Abdul-Majeed Marouf Ahmed Alani, a veteran employee, was upset over stalled union contract negotiations.

    Around 17,000 passengers were stranded overnight at Tokyo's Narita Airport, an official said Tuesday, after it took a direct hit from a powerful typhoon that caused transport chaos throughout the capital.
    The typhoon caused more than 100 flights to be scrapped and road and rail links to the airport were also badly affected, leaving many with no transport options to the city -- 70 kilometres (45 miles) to the west.
    Airport spokesman Kei Miyahara told AFP that a total of 16,900 were stuck at the airport at midnight.

    Yep. Sadly we lost the HKG route out of ORD. 787 coming to ORD. So more 787 flying, less 777 flying. Not sure what I'll be flying in the days to come.

    No problems. Just smaller. And now with two types of aircraft in ORD, the routes we fly will be split between the two. So less flying options on the 777 that we have now. And I won't be as senior, so crappier schedule.

    Facebook of the Sky: Airbus Tests Program to Track Everything You Do During Flights

    https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2019/...uring-flights/

    LUCAS NOLAN 13 Sep 2019

    Airbus is reportedly testing a new digital platform on its A350-900 test plane which would monitor every passenger action, from chosen meal preferences to in-flight purchases and even bathroom habits.

    Business Insider reports that the aviation giant Airbus announced this week that it has started in-flight trials of its newest cabin technology which will connect passengers and crew to different elements of the plane such as seats, cargo, and bathrooms. Airbus unveiled its plans for its Connected Experience at the Airline Passenger Experience Association (APEX) Expo last year.

    The platform links real-time information generated from cabin components such as meal trolleys and overhead bins to passengers and crew members on the flight in an effort to create a more personalized experience. Of course, all of this information is digitally traceable and just another example of modern companies collecting mass amounts of personal data from its customers.

    Airbus stated that the data collected from the platform will be uploaded to the “Skywise” cloud service, an open data platform developed by Airbus. The firm claims that the platform provides significant benefits to flight crews and will allow them to access passenger information such as meal and seat preferences more easily. Airbus claims that this will provide a more personalized travel experience for passengers while airlines will be able to utilize cabin equipment trends to perform “predictive maintenance” on the most used facilities on the plane.

    Ingo Wuggetzer, Airbus’s vice president of cabin marketing, said at the aviation trade show in Los Angeles this week that the technology could help flight crew to determine if a passenger in the lavatory may need assistance. The firm plans to roll out the technology on A321 planes in 2021, and its larger A350 series in 2023. Wuggetzer commented on the new system stating: “It’s not a concept, it’s not a dream: It’s reality.”
