This has been happening to me a lot lately and it hasn’t bothered me that much until now… So do you guys know how when you set your altitude for ex. 12,000 feet you need to do a V/S ( Feet per minute I believe ) I always set that V/S and my plane always shakes up and down then it gets stable and I’ve tried it with all numbers 1,000 2,000 3,000 it keeps on doing the same thing

How fast you are going??

I do it to climb right after take off somewhere between 200-220 KTS


@United_IAH I don’t think you are going too fast or too slow for the climb. Sorry Forgot to ask which aircraft.

Happens to all aircraft

That’s not normal.
This happens to the Boeing C-17 Globemaster III.

@United_IAH, when I first climb out, I always try and get to 3500 VS WITHOUT using AP, then I tap the VS to hold 3500, it will drop a bit, but it will get itself stabilized. I then select what altitude I want, in that order. That seems to work best for me.
