I have flown some missions completely on autopilot if no EA appear. The AI pilot does a grand job (sometimes). I normally land myself as it is quicker without interminably circling the aerodrome. I just go straight in and land it. And when hit by ground fire the autopilot is useless so land or crash yourself.
