    If you want to make one out of scratch for a personal project, then more power to you. :-)

    Yes. Absolutely. Planes can actually fly themselves so they could create a very minimal interface with just the thrust, ascend/decend, left/right.  A few buttons for landing gear and navigational lights.  However... if anything goes wrong up in the air, it's good to actually know how to fly
