3. Turning Performance
This lecture covers the basics of asymmetric flight and starts off by describing the method of flying a turn. Next the equations of motion for the horizontal sustained turn are derive. These lead to the load factor which describes the increased weight you feel when going through a turn. This in turn has an effect on the performance diagram.
