737-700 trim problem

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

 

I'm having trim problems when using the 737-700 variation ONLY!

After setting the FMC before departure and trimming the aircraft correctly according FMC numbers, the aircraft is unable to maintain pitch after departure so what i have to do is trimming again before engaging the autopilot. When I check the green trim zone on the pedestal, the white mark is just on the low limit of the green area.

 

Do you have any idea?

It only happens with the 700 & 700W variant.

 

Thanks!

Brian,

 

No. And this problem happens on the 700 variant only. It seems like the FMC trim value is not enough to maintain a proper pitch.

Hi,

I am experiencing the same on the 700's and as well on the 600's.
My workaround is to add around +0.5 to +0.55 to the FMC trim value, that fits pretty good to my experience.

 

Regards,

Chris
