PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It seems self-driving cars are all but a reality and now the world’s biggest aircraft manufacturer is working on the next step.
Boeing is working on self-piloting planes.
The company says increasing demand for flights, and a shortage of pilots, are the main reasons for their research.
They say planes can already take-off, cruise, and land without pilots and they plan to start simulations this summer.
Tests on a real plane could some as soon as next year.
