We’ve all heard of Tesla’s autopilot right? Being able to maneuver in and out of lanes, braking and accelerating to keep up with traffic. Imagine doing this but with a 200 ton aircraft. What if the plane you are flying in wasn’t even controlled not once by your pilot? Airbus released a video earlier today that shows an Airbus A350-1000 being tested with this new system. This new system known as ATTOL or Automated Taxi Takeoff and landing allows for the aircraft to Taxi, takeoff and land fully autonomously. The video only shows the takeoff but if you notice right before rotation you can see the captain tries to pull back on the side stick until his FO stops him. You can also see how this automated system reads the runway and corrects itself by try to maintain the runway centerline while taking off. Imagine this feature in IF being able to select a takeoff runway get your clearances and with a push of a button you are off to your departure runway. No more taxing violations 😅. What do you guys think is Autopilot going too far? Or would this be a helpful pilot aid to have? Let me know what you guys think!
