Abstract

International passenger and cargo transportation plays a crucial role in the world’s economy, and central to the success of this industry and to its continuous growth is ensuring safe, secure, and efficient operations at a national, regional, and international level. In pursuance of this, the aviation industry is becoming increasingly reliant on technology, with the aim of replacing the human user with technology. The introduction of automation, from its rudimentary beginnings, throughout its constant evolution, is now essential in almost every area of international aviation and is one of the core components in ensuring safe and efficient operations. However, its evolution, which has undoubtedly revolutionised the industry, has not always been free from challenges and controversies. This paper will therefore analyse, from both a manned and unmanned perspective, the benefits and challenges that automation has presented and continues to present to international civil aviation.
