I was wondering if you have to use trim in order to have a nice takeoff and descent. I notice with the CRJ-900 it is hard to pull up without trim during takeoff and landing. I was also wondering what trim you use for the 737-900, A319, and the CRJ-900. Please let me know!
I’ve had good flights without trim but it definitely helps. Just trim so you can not see the pink line anymore. That’s a good rule of thumb, since trim relies on a bunch of factors
For the CRJ- Series you should use about 60% trim for both takeoff and landing as shown through the official CRJ tutorial. See Infinite Flight’s channel for more CRJ tutorials.
For the 737 and the A319 I don’t tend to trim my aircraft much. What works for me during the takeoff phase is to trim it at 20%. For landing I trim it down to 30% or more.
I agree that the CRJ trim is around 50-60%. I don’t trim Airbus planes as their weight distribution is quite good… 737s I trim at 25% or so.
With the A318,19, and 20 the most trim you’ll need is 20%. The A321 will require more.
Sometimes when I fly regional hops with the CRJ I only put 20% but remember that trim is a personal preference so you will have to test around.
For most planes larger than a 737 or A320 I use 20-30% trim
Thank you everyone, this is very helpful!
Also, is that normal that the CRJ series is hard to pull up without trim.
Do you need trim during cruise?
I actually use no trim and I’m usually fine. I actually just forgot about it. It can be great to use though. When I do use it, I use from 10-25% positive or negative.
No, trim is not necessary during cruise.
Thank you everyone for your help!
@InfiniteFlight48. MaxSez: On use of Trim; Trim should remain neutral until the aircraft comes fulley alive, ( neutral) particularly on takeoff. Here’s Breitbart Expert recommendation. (Caution: There are Snakes on this plane!)
Note: This this guidance is applicable to both GA and Trash Haulers.
Bookmarked, thanks Max! :)
I’m almost all aircraft I use 20 percent trim
@ZCreaser. MaxSez: Always wondered why when I see you in flight your aircraft was always traveling with a nose high configuration.
Just Sayin, Max
