Now I have been flying for a very long time, raking up around 5,500 hours on the sim over a mere three years. However, this doesn’t mean that old (or new) dogs can’t learn new trick! I recently found out that pilots actually set trim upon takeoff in addition to in flight. I have been setting inflight trim as necessary, but I have never set takeoff trim.
My question is: how do you know how much trim to use during takeoff for the aircraft you are flying? Since there is no pink bar to indicate this, it makes it kind of hard to tell.
Thanks, and safe/healthy flying! 😄
