    Every airline aircraft has AT LEAST 2 pilots on every flight. Some of the longer duration flights over 10-14 hours may have 4 pilots. Flight crews have their own version of Hours of Service. Major airline crews have contracts and they work less than the legal maximum HOS.

    There is a degree of Automation built into transport aircraft, but even that requires a lot of training to operate the systems.

    I hope this isn't a major threat to my job in the future... The whole point of me getting into trucking was that there will always be a need for it

    So far, an automated truck hasn't taken a single job from any drivers. The largest threat to drivers is from drivers themselves.
