It's the End and Home Keys - on my Microsoft keyboard anyway. Try starting with a pitch trim setting of -1.8UP and see what that does. What you are aiming for is to be able to climb out keeping quite easily to V2+10 (the magenta triangle on the speed tape on the PFD).Rob Elliott, EGPE InvernessPSS Airbus Support andAirbus Fleet Training Captain, British Airways Virtual airbus@speedbirdonline.co.ukhttp://www.speedbirdonline.co.uk/airbus.htmlhttp://www.bavirtual.co.uk

In the FMS, I believe it's on the PERF page on the right hand side you can input the takeoff flap setting you will use, as well as the trim, in the same space. If I takeoff with flaps 3 I'll usually put "3/UP2.4" UP2.4 being the trim setting. Just punch all that straight into the FMS.

if I remember well, the airbus panel has an auto trim function, so no need to set it manually, since the panel overrides it.JohanA LITTLE LESS CONVERSATION, AND A LITTLE MORE ACTION PLEASE!HELP:http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=238882
