Aircraft manufacturer Boeing has announced it is currently testing pilot-less planes.
Airplanes can already take off, cruise and land using onboard computers, but the company is looking to see if they can fly without any human involvement.
The artificial intelligence that Boeing will test will be capable of making decisions normally made by pilots.
Boeing say that the technology could be used to reduce the number of pilots required for long-haul flights or, in some situations, allow fully autonomous flying.
Currently the air transport industry faces a global shortage of pilots. The rising demand for global air travel has grown quicker than our ability to train pilots.
However, the real question is whether people will accept the idea of pilot-less planes.
The autonomous technology will be tested in aircraft sometime next year.
