It's actually considerably more difficult. Unlike your computer, the helicopter encounters different environmental conditions each time it flies, so that just blindly recording the controller inputs and replaying them will cause the helicopter to crash. The trick in apprenticeship learning is to learn the flying model used by the pilot, not just recording and replaying a macro.
