Rasbian Autoboot Follow-Me

Hello everyone, this is my first post on here. I have done a good amount of searching but can not find an answer for what I need. I am working on a quad-copter that will automatically search for and locate lost skiers or hikers for my senior design project. Right now i am stuck at a point where i am trying to get a Raspberry Pi to automatically boot up into APM Planner and start follow me mode. I have found a few tutorials that will help me boot up APM Planner in general and even though i have not yet attempted those, it still does not solve my problem of starting follow me mode automatically.

Thank you in advance for any input here, its greatly appreciated.
