Fairly new to CV play but for the life of me I can’t figure out how to shut the autopilot feature off once it’s been engaged. I go back to the map view but can’t turn off the autopilot. 
 

Appreciate any/all help. Thanks.

Get in regular ship view, (not flying planes,) and tap A or D, in shuts off the auto pilot. Unless you tell it to do something else with WASD, you’ll go in the direction you’re pointed until you hit something.

This may sound pretty stupid but what key do you hit to go back to “regular ship view?”

If you’re flying a squad at the time, tap F to land. (You can also do that to try to save some planes if you get suddenly swamped by AA, but of course that means you’ll have to launch again to attack anything.)

You can also disengage autopilot by reaching your destination.  Once your ship has reached its final coordinate, it will cut engine power and coast to a stop.

You can attempt to stop it early by putting the destination directly in front of the CV, but fair warning... Setting the destination too close to the CV causes a bug that locks your mouse and cease allowing control for the game until the battle is over or you restart.

Lastly, in a recent patch the AI seems to have been altered.  It's very hard to put your ship in reverse as the newer autopilot seems to be ready to spin in circles should you want to reverse even a short distance.  If you need to back up, F back to the ship and kick it in reverse manually.

When you're flying your planes you hit "F" to return to your carrier. The squadron you were flying automatically returns and you are free to control your ship or select a new squadron.
