May 30 2014: Will it soon be possible to fly a plane through your mind—through thought alone? It seem that it probably will. Now what are the implications of that?

Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.

Mark Twain

The technology has been tested in a flight simulator

The brain impulses are run through an algorithm to separate the control commands

This is what that excellent site reports.

Flying is most definitely a hands-on (and feet-on) job, but it may not always be that way. Turning science fiction into fact, researchers at the Institute for Flight System Dynamics of the Technische Universität München (TUM) and the TU Berlin are developing a way for pilots to control aircraft with their minds alone. According to the team, they have not only demonstrated that it’s possible, but that it can be done with a surprising degree of accuracy.
