I have enjoyed reading this thread...all of great importance, with regard to trust.
The airplane 'wants' to fly. Some of my favorite memories are from frustrated students and instructors who have overlooked the basic skill of trimming the airplane - mostly instrument students who just cannot keep up with the airplane because all of their focus is on controlling (over) the craft. Once they learn to let go of the airplane...the mind is freed for other tasks. The airplane is flying itself - pilot just gives it suggestions! Then and only then all of the pitch and power settings work with only small adjustments. While a real airplane is truly easier to fly, the same principles must be respected.
Hats off all you guys and gals if applicable!
