Auto Pilot Turns

Recommended Posts

Any autopilots have the feature for a 1/2 rate turn so we are not going over to steep in turns for vectors??They have this in real life...right??Thanks

The Beechjet in Flight Unlimited III had a 1/2 rate turn function on its autopilot. I have never seen it in FS though.Having said that, I seem to remember that the Dreamfleet 737 autopilot had some kind of bank limiting control. I'm sure someone who flies this regularly can provide more info.

PIC 767 also has a bank angle adjustment on the autopilot. I believe most commercial flights are limited to a bank angle of no more than 30 degrees. This is pax comfort only and not a flight envelope restriction; you don't wanna spill their drinks.I think the range of adjustment on the 67 is 5 to 35 degrees. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.CF-AOA

Oh, ok...thought so.I got to the jump seat of a G-IV once and noticed the autopilot was glued to a 1/2 standard bank turn.Was just curious.Thanks all.

If i remember right, also the excellent freeware panel, Grabowski's ERJ, has the "light bank" autopilot option... it is locked turn rate (on/off type) though...
