Not for me personally thanks, but this would be fine for my robot as your passenger, as long as you are insured of course.

Auto pilot from takeoff to landing, sure.

Just so you know pilots do not push a button and sit back and relax once we are in the air. The systems do what we tell them to. Each flight is a little bit different even if it is the same route.

Some may argue about systems like autoland; "We don't need pilots anyway. They just push buttons." Whilst there is quite a bit of button pushing we are still in control. Yes, there is tech to land a plane automatically, but that only works in a limited range of conditions. Computers can't feel the subtle changes necessary to land a plane in bad weather.
