Autonomous Operations in Controlled Airspace

With FAR Part 107, the regulation of UAS in U.S. airspace was launched. Similar situations are occurring in other countries and regulated airspace areas. As larger vehicles enter airspace in controlled flight areas,
deconfliction and separation issues must be addressed. In your view, should vehicles be allowed to operate autonomously in the airspace, or should systems operators maintain continual command authority over the
vehicles? From the human factors perspective, explain your viewpoint as it affects the safety of other aircraft, air traffic management, and cautions or limitations that should be considered. Take a position on this issue and
explain your view. Provide at least one scholarly source to support your position. Note: You do not need to respond to your peers in this discussion.
