well it's not really autopilot, that's just what everyone calls it. when you fly out to sea you can just leave the control and it'll just keep flying up. then when it gets to its maximum it will go into a dive. as it gets low it'll leave the dive and start going up again. effectively making an autopilot. eventually, (i think it's about 6 hours for every single territory) gang territories will start appearing until the entire map is full of gang territories.
i don't really remember, i've only ever unlocked them all once and that was a long time ago. but a little while ago a mate of mine did it for two hours for his pilots licence at the beggining of the game, when he unlocked the gang territories grove street families automatically had 40 of them, which was at least 20 higher than the ballas.
so... the farther fly away from san andreas the more gang territories you unlock? gotta try that!
WTF i took over all terrorties it says it in my stats aswell, grove street 60(or what ever the max is) ballas0, vagos 0
I'm supposed to be doing that aswell but I got a bit bored of it so I started doing other things, now Vagos and Ballas keep attacking nearby groves

there is a limit to how far you can go out to sea, also its not how far you go, its how long you are out there.
