Approximately how long does it take to fly a complete circle during a horizontal steady co-ordinated turn with a bank angle of 45? and a TAS of 200 kt?

The formula to calculate the circumference of a circle is:

C = 2 x Pi x r

= 2 x 3,1415 x 1060 m = 6660 m

speed = distance / time --> time = distance / speed

TAS = 200 kts = 103 m/s

6660 / 103 = 63 sec.

C = 2 x Pi x r

= 2 x 3,1415 x 1060 m = 6660 m

speed = distance / time --> time = distance / speed

TAS = 200 kts = 103 m/s

6660 / 103 = 63 sec.

(gtan45 * 57.3rads per second)/200kts*.514 = 64.58seconds
