Have you read about or watched the video of the Garmin Autoland system? If not you should it is a very cool new program.
If the system can brought to market and do what is says, what a cool safety feature. Watch the videos it shows a really nice system.
The biggest issue I can see is the cost. Those of us with the lower dollar aircraft will probably not be able to afford the system. But hopefully once it gets out there in production, a more reasonable cost system designed for smaller single engine aircraft will be produced.
Just think, his could help prevent VFR into IFR fatalities or crashes caused by a pilot who is incapacitated and any other assorted issues that usually end up badly.
Thinking out loud, if you could have a system in your aircraft that would be able to communicate with the controllers, locate the nearest airport that you could reach with the fuel on board and fly the plane and land safely…who wouldn’t want that?
Oh, and what insurance company wouldn’t like to see that on an aircraft that they insure?
