    Drones are still flown by pilots, just remotely. The plane itself does not make any decisions on its own unless the plane goes lost link and then it flies a predetermined route until the pilot regains control or it runs out of fuel.

    Many UAS fly pre-programmed mission profiles with human-in-the-loop monitoring as a backup

    True, but pilots still fly the departures and landings. The auto flown routes with a pilot monitoring is no different than auto pilot.
