Al Waterloo - Quit Touching Me!!
Remember those days of family road trips and you were stuck in the back seat with your sibling? Those Clark W. Grizzwald moments in the family Truckster are pretty priceless. They probably sounded like this. "QUIT TOUCHING ME!" "MOM!! AL IS PULLING MY HAIR OUT!" "THIS IS MY SIDE AND THAT IS YOUR SIDE!" "SSSSSSSTTTTTTTTOOOOOOOPPPPPPPPP IIIIIIIIIIIITTTTTTT!!!"
Its no different in the airplane, even on a solo flight. I can gaurentee that your airplane feels like the bullied sibiling. It will probably be saying things like "QUIT TOUCHING ME!" "MOM!! AL IS PULLING MY HAIR OUT!" "THIS IS MY SIDE AND THAT IS YOUR SIDE!" "SSSSSSSTTTTTTTTOOOOOOOPPPPPPPPP IIIIIIIIIIIITTTTTTT!!!" Sound familar?
The reality is you need to keep your hands off your airplane. I am not saying you should just let go an Carrie Underwood's "Jesus Take the Wheel" will start playing. I am saying, fly the airplane but quit touching the controls. Airplanes are manhandled more often than not. Who are they man handled by? The pilot flying the plane (Excluding "Otto the Pilot or George").
Flying the airplane doesn't take much, it actually takes less than your car. To fly your airplane better, try guiding it though the air with two finger tips. When the airplane needs to be corrected, try tapping the yoke. Don't grab it and have your veins pop like your about to have blood drawn. The airplane will talk to you and tell you what it wants just through your two finger tips. All you have to do is give the airplane what it wants. You'll probably enjoy it. The airplane will seem in much more control and you'll be less stressed out and fatigued from flying. No matter if you fly a Piper Cub or a 747, this technique will work in every single airplane you fly.
