As an ancient engineer, and one not fully familiar with all the Airbus FCS subtleties, I hesitate to bring this up once again....

But, wasn't there a suggestion, early in one of the earliest threads, that AB pilots are 'not encouraged' to use manual trim (except after full reversion to "mechanical")?

Not to mention the absence of a "bicycle bell" while autotrim was winding the THS to full nose-up, contributing to a lack of "configuration awareness"?

Is "trim" still being taught, or is it now left to George entirely?
