    If the pilot becomes incapacitated, the passenger pushes the big red button in the middle of the instrument panel. The plane selects an appropriate near-by airport and auto-lands. Closer than we think.. indeed! I suspect single-pilot cargo ops of large jets are in the near future too.

    Yeah, it also activates itself if there is no pilot response within 15 seconds. It's available on new Cirrus models. I believe it's available on 4 different brands and requires auto throttle of course which one of the new features of the 940. I forget which brand it is but this Autoland system is a retrofit option for $85,000.
