I was flying the CRJ-700 and while I was cruising it seemed that the nose was level or slightly down. It was very slight and I just wanted to know if that was normal and how it cruises in real life or if I need to add trim?
Well it depends on altitude and speed with the pitch of youre nose at cruising and plus trim doesn’t help.
How fast were you cruising?
My speed was Mach 0.78
Wait you have another topic about this. I’ll flag this for closure.
I already flagged the other topic.
Oop ok I’ll dm the mods not to close this then.
I doubt it’s a problem. If your flying an appropriate altitude and you’ve said already your speed is .78 so you should be fine. Although I don’t fly the CRJ often so I could be wrong 😅🤷🏻♂️
Just trim until there is no pink line and you should be good
I tried that and I kept adjusting my trim and the pink vertical line wasn’t going away.
Hmm what are winds right now?
This was a previous flight, but the winds weren’t strong and it was a stable flight.
I just want to know if this is how it is in real life this way I’m flying correctly.
If you are at a good alt and speed, its fine.
Ok thank you!
Tangled with your question and its answer, I have been trying to find a decisive answer to the question: Does an aircraft in steady flight (constant horizontal and vertical speed) ever have a negative angle of attack?
Just to make sure - you’re flaps are up, right?
Yeah they are up
