When I went through Airbus training in the mid-2000s, the first session was flown in direct law to show me that it flew "like an airplane."
No it doesn't. In DIRECT LAW you have an airplane that flies like the microsoft flight simulator. NORMAL LAW resembles better how an airplane flies, only it is always in trim, so to speak. In direct, there is absolutely no feeling of the aerodinamic forces, a given elevator deflection Feels exactly the same at 140 kt and at 350 kt. It does not fly like an airplane. It does in normal law.
