Manual thrust, no autopilot whren OEI makes life simpler if you remember how to include the speed trend arrow in your scan. It means you anticipate the changes in yaw when YOU change the thrust, as opposed to autothrust and FiFI the electric wonderjet doing it for you, leaving you playing catch up with the trim. Does mean you have to have old fashioned values, for example a proper working scan, ball park figures for power and attitude, all delightfully old fashioned.
At my previous airline all Capts were RHS checked each sim, just EFATO, single engine circuit, go around, circuit and land. 15 minutes worth of old fashioned hand flying at the company's expense and time. Priceless.
