Google got into the business of autonomous flights. To do this, it will use 55 King Air aircraft to offer fully autonomous flights, from take-off to landing.

This is the new proposal from Merlin Labs, a Boston-based startup that recently raised $25 million in a funding round led by Google Ventures and First Round Capital.

Google got into the business of autonomous flights.

Merlin Labs partnered with Dynamic Aviation to try to achieve its goal of creating a fleet of autonomous aircraft, without human pilots and capable of transporting passengers.

The company, however, does not build airplanes or drones, but rather focuses on artificial intelligence.

His work consists of an evolution of autopilots, to offer an autonomous driving system in aircraft. A job that they have already tried in "hundreds of missions" and managed to attract the interest of Google.

Merlin Labs wants to create the first autonomous flight system for large, fixed-wing aircraft. A system that complies with aviation regulations. They are still a long way from reaching this point at the moment, but the startup reports that it conducted multiple aircraft tests at the Mojave Air and Space Port.

Specifically, they installed their platform on four different planes, from single-engine planes to planes with several of them.
