Young, well-educated American males are the most comfortable with the idea of traveling by a pilotless plane, according to a new UBS survey of 5,000 people.
The study is an expansion on the UBS note released earlier this month that suggested the aviation industry could save $35 billion a year by ditching on-board human control.
In a section dedicated to public perception, UBS reported that fewer than one-in-five of the respondents (17 percent) said they would get on a flight with no pilot.
However, it seemed Americans are more gung-ho about the idea than some other nations.
"There are slight differences among countries, with a greater percentage of respondents in the U.S. willing to take pilotless flights (27 percent), compared with other countries," the study claimed.
"French and German respondents are the most unlikely to take a flight with no pilot."
