Using Trim After Takeoff

Recommended Posts

Howdy!I was wondering what the procedure is for using trim after takeoff. I generally get 6.0 as a trim setting for take off. After rotation i start to follow the FD cues but sometimes find that i have to pull rather hard on the yoke to pitch up and down especially if the aircraft is fully loaded. I normally fly up to 10,000ft manually and i use trim during my initial climb to position the nose in the FD cues which eliminates overuse of the yoke.In real world operations id imagine that forceful movements on the yoke during a critical stage of flight ,such as take off, can cause damage to the airplane. So can i use trim to help with the pitch up movements after rotation or do i keep my current trim setting up until a certain point? I dont think its an issue with my yoke as i calibrate it before every flight. Cheers
