- Standard rate one turn is 3 degrees per second.
- The standart rate one turn it’s in relation with airspeed and angle of bank.
- The lower the airspeed at a given angle of bank:
- The higher rate of turn.
- The smaller the radius of turn.
- The rule of thumb to determine approximate angle of bank required for a standard rate turn is to divide your airspeed by 10 and add one half the result.
- 120 kt:10 = 12.
- At 120 kt the approximate angle of bank required for a standard rate turn is 18°.
- When you return from a turn to straight and level flight you have ton anticipate the roll out.
- The amount of lead for the roll out from the turn is approximately ½ angle of bank.
- If you held 18° of bank in turn 18:2=9 you should begin your roll out 9° before the desired heading.
- A small amount of pitch adjustment may be required during the turn entry and recovery
Scan technique: Turn
- What information do I need ?
- Altitude, heading.
- Which instrument give me the needed?
- Attitude indicator
- Heading indicator.
- Is the Information reliable ?
- Confirm the reliability of the heading indicator by referring to the turn coordinator and the magnetic compass.
- Confirm the reliability of the altimeter by referring to the airspeed indicator and the vertical speed indicator.
- What is the rule of thumb used to calculate when to start your roll out?
- What is the scan for Turn?
- How many degrees per second is a rate one turn?
