View Full Version : JAR - Maximum Bank Angle for Maneuvering

8th Feb 2008, 22:34
Researched JAR awhile back and "know" I read a reg that stated if an operator uses more than a 25 degree bank angle in a termainal area, special authorization is required.

Anyone know the specific JAR part. Now I can't find it.

JAR OPS Sub-part G Perfromance Class A 1.495 (c) 2 and 3. Appendix 1 to JAR OPS 1.495 (c) 3.

Repeated in Sub-part H and I for class B and C.

Thanks very much Wingswinger. I found this part but was under the impression that 25 degrees of bank was basically a Standard Rate Turn and, at one time, thought I had seen somehting about this during, say vectoring by Approach Control. Guess I was mistaken.

My company has a bank angle setting of 30 degrees while maneuvering in Terminal Areas and I can't remember any company I worked for that had a bank angle setting of more than 25 degrees.

Thanks for the info.
