"Worst of all, UAV operators are not shown the same respect as pilots who go into the air aboard their aircraft."

Yeah, I can see how pilots of manned aircraft would look down on UAV operators due to the fact that the UAV operator isn't personally putting his life at risk whereas a pilot of manned aircraft is. I think the idea of having NCOs operate the UAVs makes sense, as the officer only rule may be a bit outdated.


  1. Did you see "Good Kill," starring Ethan Hawke? Good cinematic examination of the stresses, and self-esteem issues, of being a drone pilot...

  2. I never saw that. I'll have to add that to my Netflix list.
