Abstract:

Data were collected during a demonstration of the Breguet STOL transport aircraft in the New York City area. Analysis of data was directed to the terminal area maneuvering requirements. Turning radii for 80 knots IAS with a 15 degree bank angle appeared correct for use as a minimum standard in the development of departure routes and holding patterns. The angle between successive route segments limits the minimum distance between the way-points used to establish the intercepted segment.
