What angle of attack should a tricycle gear plane have while on the ground. I'm thinking it should be just a little negative to keep it on the ground until pilot gives input, but not any more than necessary, as that I suppose could contribute to pilot induced oscillation. A little negative would help keep it on the ground post touchdown too. I just haven't read anything on this topic.
