Trim Question

Hello everyone !
I’d like to ask a question regarding Trim .
When should I use the trim , and what percentage should I use ?
Thank you !

Depends on your weight. The heavier you are, the more positive trim you need.

This video by Mark explains it pretty well


It varies from aircraft to aircraft, but when you takeoff you would usually go for around 15-20%. When you take control from the autopilot on approach, I recommend trimming to make sure you can’t see the magenta line on your trim tab, which indicates how much the autopilot is having to apply so you can take control more smoothly. After that, trim until it feels comfortable.
