Steep Turns

16 Oct

we have a rule of thumb to calculate the standard Bank for a given speed.
(speed/10)+7
so at any given speed lets say 120 knots. what would your standard rate bank angle be?

120/10=12

12+7=19

19 degrees would be your standard bank angle to establish and fly a standard rate turn.

If this information is available on the aircrafts manual the posted bank shall be used.
