So I see a LOT of people asking about what trim setting for an aircraft so I decided to make a database so they dont have to ask anymore. Post what trim setting you KNOW is for an aircraft, in the list, in the comments and I will add it in.
DASH 8 Q 400:
SPITFIRE MK VIII:
Trimming is making minor adjustments on usually the elevator, aileron and/or rudder to free the pilot from exerting a pressure on the controls. They might use trim to keep the aircraft level, or to keep it at a steady ascent/descent.
Hence, it isn’t a standard setting rather is adjustable based on pilot preference.
Also, trim will change based on whether the aircraft is taking off, landing, or in cruise, as the aerodynamic loads change in the different parts of the flight. There is no one perfect trim setting to be used for the aircraft.
Yes. I know this. But this is for a general trim setting for takeoff and landing.
Like Yacht said, trim doesn’t work like flaps. It is up to pilot preference what degree of pressure they want to add on the yoke according to the weight of the aircraft.
In Mark Denton’s (Skyhawk Heavy) videos, when going over takeoff and landing procedures, notice when he mentions his personal preferred trim settings. He always makes sure to note that it is what he enjoys using, but not necessarily the trim setting that others might feel comfortable with.
The A10 trim settings
Takeoff – The A10 uses 15% trim to takeoff for a nice slow rotating takeoff !
Landing – When landing the A10 you want to keep around 3-5 degrees pitch so this requires your trim to be from anywhere from 25% to 40% due to the change of speed to keep the nose up
Hope I can assist with the A10 trim settings
