Applicable to MSFS2000 (from wence came much of the base CFS2 code). Not applicable to CFS2, although there are ways to modify. If you're into realism note that there were no autopilots for CFS2 modeled aircraft.

I haven't tried all the autopilot commands yet but the following ones DO work:

Autopilot Master
Wing Leveler
Altitude Hold
Heading Hold
Heading Bug Increment\Decrement

These are all pretty much self-explanatory.

I don't really use them but they could come in handy at times, like mission testing.

**Hit the Autopilot Master command first before using the other commands. Then hit it again to turn Autopilot off.
