        As CFI you are not PIC if the other pilot is qualified, current, qualified in cat/class AND you are not giving instruction or acting as safety pilot. If you don't have CFI you are definitely not PIC.

          Transfer of control crew coordination in military, commercial and civilian (Corp/GA) aviation has been a thing for decades, not new. I got my CFI in 1993. I always explained to students day one, when I took control I'd say "I have control" and they say "you have control" (and let go of controls). Vice verse. Never stop flying unless I acknowledge. This is not new. It's normal crew coordination. There have been many accidents in all areas of flying because no one was flying. "I thought you had it".

            I wouldn't schedule an appointment for that yoke mounted trim on/off switch install. I have flown numerous types of twins and singles with electric trim, and have not seen one yet. Autopilot disconnect, Yes. Trim on/off No. Nothing harder than flying an airplane and actually not be the one flying it. Good job. Enjoyed the video.

              That was a nice flight. -1000 Density altitude? We don't get that here in Farmington :o)

              Is it my imagination or the flight got really bumpy just before landing ??? :)

              I hate bumpy flights. :(

                You are correct. I edited out some conversation on that.

              1:02 "Why would you turn your electric trim off....?" If only Boeing had made it that simple on the 737 Max. :(

                The 737 max trim could be turned off I dont know why the foreign pilots didnt do it

                  What flies under you at 11:02? I thought it was a drone, but then the blades look like a helicopter...

                    @Taking Off It probably helps to be watching this on my editor with 34" LG super wide monitors. :-)

                    Dang!! Good eyes. I had to watch over and over. But yes, I think it's a helicopter.
