Black Hawk helicopter flies itself over mountain range in test
In the blue skies above the Diablo Range, just east of San Jose, a Black Hawk helicopter flew a two-hour test mission controlled entirely by a computer -- without a pilot’s hand.

There were pilots aboard the aircraft, but all maneuvers during the flight were conducted autonomously, Army officials said. Through its sensors and onboard computers, the Black Hawk was able to sense surrounding terrain, assess risk and avoid possible threats.

Kinda related:

I saw 2 separate formations of blackhawks (5 in each) about an hour and a half apart on Monday the 3rd heading east here in central Texas. I've been here since the middle of October and that's the first time I've seen that...

It would have to cuz i'm not flying it. Worked on the SH60 for a few years but flying is another story.

2 feet pedals
1 up/down lever on the right of driver
1 stick in front of driver
1 overhead jet engine throttle
plus all the avionics

Learn to run all that
