feel

An expression used to describe a pilot's reaction when using an aircraft control. If the control is power operated or power assisted, an artificial feel is usually put on the control stick to give the pilot a correct impression of the effect of movement of the controls. The term also refers to the method by which a pilot gets an aircraft heading, altitude, and air speed he or she wants from the aircraft. The pilot may do this by “the seat of the pants”; from aircraft's instruments; or finally, from the airframe vibration or engine noise. It is a subjective assessment of the aircraft's response to flight, using controls, stability, stick forces required, and other factors that may influence the pilot's opinion.

In response to the question regarding how well students liked having all course materials available to them on the web, one student wrote, "I felt like you went over things very quickly and didn't focus [on] certain issues as much as I would have liked because things were on the Web." While this was the only student who provided feedback of this nature, it is important to address this perception and to use caution when implementing this teaching method so as not to create this perception among many students.
