Hi Chris,Check your Takeoff Trim. It may have been set too high.For FO takeoffs, the FO will try to maintain a proper pitch attitude within a certain range, but remember that getting the FO to fly the plane is more of an art than a science. If you're in rough weather or your trim is set too high or something, he can still be tripped up.Cheers,Bryan
