This seems like lunacy to me, a million $ aircraft with no humans in the cockpit , even for a short demonstration flight. FOr me , the solution for not enough pilots for commuter airlines is to find, hire, train and dispatch human pilots, and pay them enough to keep their attention.

Agreed. Many pilots simply quit. The job can be very rewarding, but not financially, and takes a toll on any sort of home/social life. The cargo crews are those that feed the commuter's pilot slots, that feed the airline pilot's slots. So, what exactly is this autoflight thing supposed to fix?

I trust that the person controlling this autoflight plane is also a pilot, the same one that could be flying the plane. Does drone experience on a resume count as flight time in the eyes of the airlines, with regard to hiring qualified pilots?
