It behaves as you describe there. However, where many pilots become unstuck is in an OEI go-around. The autopilot does not know you only have one engine available, and you probably don't have enough...

Umm, not quite. The GA button cancels all other modes, maintains wings level, and commands a rate of climb of 750 fpm. The key point about this behavior is, if you don't have the power required to...

If he'd done 6.8 hours IF training in a 76 he should have worked out that you should not be hands flying it in IMC, and certainly not hands flying it in SAS mode with the force trim off. For the life...
