Trim Information and vertical control

The current issue with 737Max had me thinking about how easy it is to overtrim and rely on the ap to correct. Trim is a really important topic, as it stresses the airframe and controls speed and airplane posture.

Effective trimming reduces wear, fuel consumption, eases takeoff and landing, and makes for a more graceful flight. how about putting pink bars on the trim tab so we can see how much physical force we would need to hold the plane level, and to know it is trimmed correctly?

There already is a pink bar. All you have to do to level the trim, is trim up or down until the pink bar disappears.


it is there!!! its so tiny!!! thanks!
