A friend who flew the L1011s loved them because of their stability. His joke was that you could put the plane into a banked turn , go to the bathroom, come back, and you would still be in the same banked turn. He felt that other planes like the 767 require far more concentration.
Can a pilot explain to me how an aircraft not returning to straight and level flight on it's own decreases workload? Would you not have to correct every small bank error just to not go off course?
Edit Jan Hudec is correct when he says that it may involve s comparison of spiral dive tendency. But
still be in the same *banked" turn. H
Makes me wonder why it doesn't right itself
