Do you fly with auto pilot on with things like alt, isl and hdg hold on?

I usualy fly civil jets with autopilot on.

Please discuss and let me know how you fly.

Take off, fly the SID by hand usually, then A/P to cruise level. Initial descent with A/P on, fly most of the STAR by hand, approach always (*always*) by hand, landing, no need to mention... by hand.

It depends on the craft.I use auto pilot in heavies.In smaller crafts i prefer bad weather (especially strong winds) and manual flying 😉

No choice for both ways. 🙂 😉
