Example text

Attempting to “fly the airplane with the trim tabs” is a common fault in basic flying technique even among experienced pilots. A properly trimmed airplane is an indication of good piloting skills. Any control pressures the pilot feels should be a result of deliberate pilot control input during a planned change in airplane attitude, not a result of pressures being applied by the airplane because the pilot is allowing it to assume control. Figure 3-5. Level turn to the left. All four primary controls are used in close coordination when making turns.

To stop the turn, the wings are returned to level flight by the coordinated use of the ailerons and rudder applied in the opposite direction. To understand the relationship between airspeed, bank, and radius of turn, it should be noted that the rate of turn at any given true airspeed depends on the horizontal lift component. The horizontal lift component varies in proportion to the amount of bank. Therefore, the rate of turn at a given true airspeed increases as the angle of bank is increased. qxd 7/13/04 11:08 AM Page 3-9 SKID Ball to outside of turn COORDINATED TURN Ball centered SLIP Ball to inside of turn Pilot feels sideways force to outside of turn Pilot feels sideways force to inside of turn Pilot feels force straight down into seat Figure 3-8.

This is sometimes responsible for the habit of climbing slightly in right-hand turns and diving slightly in left-hand turns. This results from many factors, including the unequal rudder pressures required to the right and to the left when turning, due to the torque effect. The tendency to climb in right-hand turns and descend in left-hand turns is also prevalent in airplanes having side-by-side cockpit seating. In this case, it is due to the pilot’s being seated to one side of the longitudinal axis about which the airplane rolls.
