- Place AI piloted chopper
- Place AI group you want as passengers
- Place "Load" waypoint for the chopper
- Place "Get in" waypoint for the passenger group
- Synchronize these two waypoints
- Place a new waypoint for chopper to fly off to
- Preview mission
- Observe AI chopper limping off slowly when it leaves the pickup zone
- Press ESC and abort mission
When an ai pilot picks up passengers and dusts off to the next waypoint it seems to be stuck in autohover for around 20-30 seconds after leaving the pickup zone.
The ai pilot should turn autohover off immediately when the last person of the passengers is aboard.

Doing tests with other choppers seems to indicate that the AI keeps the autohover on until a certain distance from the pickup point, instead of a certain time.

I notice that if you just place an AI chopper on the ground and use this engineon true it goes to hover mode. Previously I thought it sat on the ground with engines running. Also this engineon false no longer works.
