How frequently do pilots utilize the autopilot when there is an emergency? If not, then how much is it used during bad weather? What about takeoff and landing?

A pilot may disconnect the autopilot in situations with considerable turbulence to reduce the aircraft’s vertical loads by minimizing the amount of corrective control inputs. The autopilot is generally utilized in bad weather.

Most landings and all takeoffs are performed manually. In low visibility situations, many airplanes use auto land, where the autopilot or autopilots make the landing while being closely supervised by the pilots.
