737 series banking speed?

Recommended Posts

Hey folksRead somewhere that it's not recommended to be less than 180 kias when banking during approach proceedures (ie flying a STAR).Is this true?Cheers...............Iain

737NGNo, that could be the All Flaps Up Landing emergency which is limited to 15 degrees of bank on final approach. In normal operations though at 180 knots and with the proper flap set, the airplane will have full maneuvering. The flap maneuvering speed schedule provides the recommended maneuvering speed for various flap settings. When recommended maneuvering speeds are followed, the schedule provides margin to stick shaker for at least and inadvertent 15 degree overshoot beyond the normal 25 degrees angle of bank. Use the flap schedule on the PFD.Floyd

Hi FloydI thought the no banking (turning) recomendation for the 737 below 180 kias sounded strange.As you have said, speed on approach is defined by the PFD indicated air speed for the flap position.Perhaps what this guy was meaning is that it is easier to turn the 737 at 180 kias than at 150 kias irespective of flap positioning.Certainly, when using a STAR, there are times you need to turn at speeds below 180 kias with the appropiate amount of flap.Thanks for reconfirming.........Iain
