LOL ! I flew the real thing, the closest thing to the autopilot is trimming the a/c so she flies by herself.

I flew the C-150 for quite some time and "long flights" really means about 30 miles. Just trim it up and go! Autopilot only adds unnecessary weight.  Big thumbs up

Put an autopilot in a 152 and it probably wont get off the ground.
Get used to trimming, or holding the wheel.

as others have hinted, there is no autopilot.
While some 152s have been fitted with them in real life, the vast majority have not.

You'll have to get used to handflying her, good training for when you get to the large boys like the Boeing 314.

I´ve flown an IFR certified C-152, fitted with an autopilot! Big grin
Pretty weird...

The C-152 is built as an ab-initio trainer and therefore most of them aren´t equipped with fancy gizmos like an autopilot.
Also they aren´t suitable for very long flights.

Take your time and you'll get there, eventually  Big thumbs up

Let's see, 1500nm at 100 knots groundspeed equals 15 hours.
Legs equal 2 hours with 30 minutes extra on each leg for approach and climbout.
That's 7 * 1/2 = 3.5 hours extra on top of 15 hours, for a total triptime of 18.5 hours, give or take 15 minutes or so.

Not that bad.

Of course I've not taken into account time on the ground, weather diversions, etc. etc.
