How plane trim debunks curvature

Post by flatterme on Fri Jan 26, 2018 8:12 pm

My previous post “How ascending planes debunk the globe – part 2” describes, using simple trigonometry, how the ascent rate of an airplane is impossible on a globe. The rebuttal to this was that the airplane somehow still “follows the curve” while ascending. However, an airplane cannot simultaneously “follow the curve” which requires the trim to be constantly in the upward position (Nose-Down), while at the same time ascending which, requires the trim to be in the completely opposite position (Nose-Up).

Therefore, during take-off and descent, the total amount of curvature that SHOULD be accounted for by the trim is non-existent. Just take some time and think about that.
