sidestick

I have a question about the sidestick.

Is the “traveling distance” for pitch control similar to a conventional yoke? Do you have to pull it all the way back to your belly or is a simple movement of your wrist sufficient to land the aircraft?

The movement is similar to a yoke, and if anything, even less. It is very comfortable and easy to adapt to. I can say this having had the opportunity to fly the plane yesterday, the first time since I signed my contract in January of 1997. It is everything I had remembered and more, an exquisite machine. I once made a two page list of its features that I found exceptional.
