This is the question, and millions of people may have to choose in the future if they want to use this mean of transportation to their holidays.

As we approach a world of pilotless cars that are already on the road in some US cities

and tested in London, remote-controlled airplanes can be the next mode of transport.

This type of aircraft is to be tested by the Boeing aircraft manufacturer in 2018.

A UBS financial services survey suggests that these unmanned aircraft are not too popular, but 54% of the 8,000-questioned people say they are unlikely to take a pilotless flight. People in the 50+ age group were the most reluctant, most avoiding the idea.

Only 17% of those surveyed said they would go into such an airplane. Most are young, willing to try, and the 25-34 age group said they were most likely to get on board.

 

The sense of security?

One of the biggest debate points around the introduction of the planes is safety.

While flight is generally considered to be one of the safest forms of travel, the UBS report suggested that unmanned airplanes would be even safer.

He found that about 70% to 80% of the accidents that occur are the result of human errors, and crew fatigue is responsible for 15% to 20% of them.
