REMOTE CONTROL: Aviation Expert Says Germanwings 9525 Could Have Been ‘Hacked Electronically’


Following a series of high-profile airline disasters, including Germanwings flight 9525, the mainstream media has seized the opportunity to openly push for ‘pilotless’ commercial airliners.

There has been a concentrated effort to gain public support for pilotless commercial flights and other unmanned aerial aircraft in recent years. Those behind the concept have touted the development of such avionics under the guise of “safety concerns”, unfairly laying blame on pilots – without fully revealing all of the technological advancements which are currently installed on nearly every commercial airliner worldwide.

‘Fly-by-Wire’ Airliners

In a recent article appearing in the New York Times, entitled, “Planes Without Pilots“, the pseudo push for ‘remotely’ controlled commercial airliners is laid bare:

“Advances in sensor technology, computing and artificial intelligence are making human pilots less necessary than ever in the cockpit. Already, government agencies are experimenting with replacing the co-pilot, perhaps even both pilots on cargo planes, with robots or remote operators.”
