    Not on a bet or a dare.

    Whoever is operating the aircraft in which I ride will have just as much at stake.

    I'd definitely try it if offered an opportunity. Nothing scares me after flying Ukrainian airlines.

    You would have to tie me down to keep me off it. Natural born trill seeker I would be off in a flash.

    In a piloted aircraft, the pilot not only hears and sees the warnings, but also feels the aircraft's response to an issue. This allows him to respond, quicker. A drone "pilot" will not have the physical input.

    Machines are made by man, and are therefore flawed. Not only is the drone flawed by nature, but so is the wireless connection.

    How many of you rode around in the back of a m113 or m901 fully buttoned up with someone else at the control. You can't see anything all you hear is the engine. Now that is scary, at least in that you see what is coming in time to yell oh crap.

    After seeing drunken Ukrainian pilots who get in fights at airports or on airplanes, yell at passengers, sometimes mid-flight, my opinion of what's scary might be different from yours.
    Once an air taxi drone service is in place, I will gladly try it out, love flying despite everyone droning about the risks
