Again have your instructor or safety pilot fly straight-and-level and then enter a coordinated turn
at about 50 degrees of bank (about 1.
27) Turn and bank indicator: Shows rate of turn and whether plane is banked for a properly coordinated turn
A coordinated turn
further requires a corrective yaw rotation in the horizontal plane to counter the slip induced by the original roll.
If the string blows straight at you in a turn, you're making a coordinated turn
Pitch and yaw came relatively easy, but absent the ability to command a roll for a coordinated turn
, aviation could go nowhere--at least nowhere near the intended heading.
Appropriate rudder pedal pressure in the direction of the turn is needed to keep the ball centered during the turn to produce a coordinated turn
If this occurs, add to your recovery procedures a coordinated turn
to a wing-level attitude.
If the two are in equilibrium, the ball will remain in the cage, centered, displaying a coordinated turn
The diagram at right graphically depicts the various forces acting on an airplane in a level, coordinated turn
For instance, a favorite query of pilots who are established in a normal, level, coordinated turn
is, "What control surface are you using right now to make this turn happen?
As the article noted, the "'aerodynamic best' turnaround, on the other hand, occurs in a coordinated turn
, at a bank angle of 45 degrees, at an airspeed just barely above the corresponding stall speed.
In a constant altitude, coordinated turn
in any airplane, the load factor is the result of two forces: centrifugal force and gravity.
