Does a pilot have to tilt plane's nose as it travels long distance to keep the plane horizontal to the plane of Earth as our Earth is a globe?

Yes, pilots have to constantly adjust the plane’s nose when they fly high enough over long distances. They do this in order to keep the plane level due to the curvature of the Earth.
