Three analytical methods are derived for calculating lateral distance and heading error combinations that an aircraft can correct with lateral control inputs. The techniques for calculating the maximum correctable errors are based on lateral-directional dynamics with a static, geometric analysis to assure compliance with an aircrafts longitudinal maneuvering capabilities. The analyses are developed using the power approach configuration as an illustration to present the derivation and to show how aircraft maneuverability and pilot operating limits dictate the problem boundaries. Computer techniques are emphasized as the means for the mathematical solutions. Author
