I am curious what people think about the various statements made in the article.

The US National Research Council recently completed a report on the same general subject. The report, titled "Autonomy Research for Civil Aviation: Toward a New Era of Flight" is available here: http://www.nap.edu/catalog.php?record_id=18815

Downloading a free PDF copy requires registering or at least providing an e-mail address.

If anyone has the time to read the report, I am curious what you think about it.
