This will be my first feature request today, and it’s about auto trim.
Now, you may be wondering, “Oh, more automation? This isn’t what flying is all about!” In some ways that statement is right, but let me explain a little more.
Auto trim is becoming increasingly prevalent in commercial aircraft. All Airbus models include auto trim and likewise for a select few Boeing. This feature isn’t just about increasing automation, it’s also about ease of use. In many real world situations you will most likely see the trim moving - so I thought, why not in Infinite Flight?
Well, it’s quite simple. As you can probably imply, it will automatically trim the aircraft. Sometimes everything gets a little overwhelming, therefore this will be especially useful when managing flaps, spoilers, lights, and everything else at once.
I suggest that auto trim works in 1% increments to make it safer - increasing trim at values of 10%+ can make the aircraft unstable. If you need any clarification on what I mean by 1% increments please feel free to mention it below.
So, that’s all I have to say. I hope you agree with me in that adding this feature will add to ease of use and offer more realism to commercial aircraft. I would highly appreciate if you could vote for this feature request if you agree. Thank you for reading!
Disclosure - The last feature request similar to this one was last updated in 2016, so I figured this was a good time to refresh the possibility of this idea. Thank you.
