ASE 167M Lab #6: Turning Flight Drew Rosecrans April 14, 2010 Abstract The purpose of the turning flight lab is to determine how airspeed, bank angle, and altitude affect the turning radius and the turning rate of an aircraft. As airspeed decreases so does the turning rate and radius. As the bank angle increases, the turning radius and rate decreases. As the altitude increases so does the turning rate and radius. Also it is important to notice the difference between the theoretical values and the measured values. 1 Objectives 1. Calculate the turning rate and radius for an aircraft at given airspeed, altitude, and bank angle. 2. Fly the calculated turns in the flight simulator. 3. Prepare plots which give theoretical turn rates and radii for specified airspeeds, altitudes and bank angles, and compare actual Link performance with the theoretical values. 2 Discussion Based on the airspeed and the bank angle the turning rate and radius can be calculated for the turns executed in the lab.
