I don't care so much about the one hand or two hands on the yoke discussion; however, I have always "tried" to be pedantic about the way Cathay wants us to fly. This is because something that was mentioned in CRM day several years ago regarding LOSA, 'Airlines with the highest accident/incident rates also have the highest rates of wilful disregard to procedures.' This includes such minor things like not referencing the After Takeoff Checklist because the procedure is so simple. I would put flying with one hand in the same category. Cathay Training teaches a certain way. Choosing to disregard even the most minor manufacturer recommendations puts you in the same group of airlines as those with very high accident incident rates.
