It takes an order to land a plane, right? Why not just keep it going an flying, strafing away or whatever else it can do?

Its been a while but as I recall one a plane is flying you have to give it an order or it goes off the board. Is that true? If so that is the reason.

from the rules book

An Airplane that ends its movement on a friendly Aircraft
carrier or Airfield hex containing no other unit (with the sole
possible exception of additional friendly, Ready to Take-off
markers) can safely land there; it does not need to be ordered
again in future turns, until its owner wishes for it to take-off
again.

At that
point, the Airplane may be ordered, using a single order from
a Section card or applicable Command card, much like other
units are ordered in the game.
This means that landed Airplanes do not require an
Air Sortie card or equivalent to take-off.
Any standard order
will suffice
