When an autoflight or autopilot system is working correctly, it is constantly sending signals to the flight control system. As the pilot, you can instruct the autopilot on what type of mode you want, like a heading hold mode or an altitude hold mode. Or if you want to hold a specific altitude, you have the option of designating that as well.

With today’s technology, autopilot systems have become more sophisticated and can maintain a navigational course. Just like the GPS you use in your car, a pilot could program a GPS to maintain a specific course and the autopilot system can take the designated turns to get from point A to point B. Given the complexities of this continually-evolving technology, it is important to fly with confidence knowing that everything is operating as it should be.
