Feature Article: Anticipation
The ability to anticipate changes in control pressures required
for a particular maneuver must be developed. Failure to anticipate
rudder movement required to move the nose as airspeed decreases
is a most common flight error. The behavior of instruments such
as the airspeed indicator and vertical speed indicator that lag
in relation to sound and attitude changes must be expected and
understood. Chasing the airspeed indicator is a common student
fault. Even worse is not recognizing that the VSI (vertical speed
indicator) takes about 12 seconds before giving accurate indications
unless the control movements are exceptionally smooth. Starting
the trim from a known position and keeping track of its movements
in various flight configurations makes possible rapid/correct
trim pressure corrections.
