FedEx C-208 remote piloting being tested
 
As the title says:
https://eu.commercialappeal.com/stor...cs/5655258002/
A FedEx Express aircraft recently took flight without a pilot aboard to test the potential of autonomous flight.

The Cessna 208 Caravan (C208) owned by FedEx performed an automated landing on June 30,
. The remotely piloted flight occurred at San Martin Airport in California.

That might take a lot of entry level flying jobs?

I wouldn’t mind setting up a secure home office and remotely land / take off a few machines

I believe those flying jobs will become simply jobs without the "flying" part.
Of course that's just my opinion.
