Pitch, Power, Rudder, Trim

Ok, I studied all my ground school DVDs, sim'd all basic tasks, now we're ready to get to the real business of flying.

So it's in this order; pitch, power, rudder, trim. And almost every maneuver is performed with changes to each of these controls in THIS sequence.

Makes sense if you think it through, and see it works that way in practice. Change that sequence and the plane is not setup for the next part of the maneuver.
