U.S. Air Force suffers brain drain as Top Guns drop out to fly drones - leaving pilot numbers down by SEVEN HUNDRED
[link to www.dailymail.co.uk]

The U.S. Air Force is struggling to keep its top gun combat pilots as increasing numbers move to the safety of flying attack drones from military bases. Indeed, despite their adrenaline fueled reputations, fighter pilots believe the stresses of actual combat compared to the financial incentives of flying passenger airlines or drones are too much too ignore. Facing a shortfall of 700 pilots from a required pool of 3,000 by 2021, the Air Force is now actively offering a huge $225,000 signing on bonus for new pilots - provided you stay in the service for nine years.

The USAF can force the pilots to do whatever they want. Stop loss.

I was brought up to believe
the universe has a plan
we are only human, it is not ours to understand

The universe has a plan
All is for the best
Some will be rewarded
And the devil will take the rest

All is for the best
Believe in what we're told

Its easy. Limit the amount of drone pilots accepted and change the requirements for the position. Soon all the positions will be filled and the openings will be few and far between. If you want to become a drone pilot you'll have to wait your turn as a "real" pilot.

Their phasing humans out..I remanded hearing a year or so ago that all the newest technologies can fly at Mac speeds but humans cannot survive the speed....physical humans are becoming obsolete in warfare

It's easy to become a drone pilot. You can buy a quadcopter for about $500 that will carry a couple of pounds of payload. Add a camera and there may still be some payload left.
