Advanced Cockpit Project
January 2, 2016 16:53


The largest aircraft manufacturers, including Airbus and Boeing, are developing an automated system that will eliminate co-pilots in the crews of passenger and cargo aircrafts. It was reported by The Times on Monday, December 28.

The development of the new technology involves a total of 35 aircraft manufacturers and research groups. It is expected that the introduction of such a system will allow the companies to save on staff and thereby reduce the cost of operations, as well as increase security by reducing the number of errors caused by human factor.

The development has been funded by the European Commission, as the newspaper notes. The project is called ACROSS, which means “advanced cockpit for reduction of stress and workload”, according to “Russian BBC Service”. In fact, it is a more perfect autopilot that can control the liner during bad weather conditions, in case of emergencies, as well as in heavily loaded airspace.

It is planned to complete the development in the next six months. However, the experts worry that the system will not be able to cope with its task. According to the data cited by The Times, a significant number of dangerous incidents during flights are prevented by pilots, and not automatically. At the same time the creators of the project emphasize that 60 percent of crashes in 2010 occurred because of the actions of the crew.
