All aircraft must be able to perform a standard rate turn, also known as a rate one turn. A standard rate turn for airplanes is defined as a 3° per second turn, which completes a 360° turn in 2 minutes. This is known as a 2-minute turn, or rate one. For heavy airplanes a standard rate turn is a 4-minute turn. Instruments, either the turn and bank indicator or the turn coordinator, have the standard rate turn clearly marked. Light aircraft are equipped with 2-minute turn indicators while heavy aircraft are equipped with 4-minute turn indicators. This is very useful to pilots who are out of visual contact with the ground and for air traffic control when appropriate separation of aircraft is desired. The pilot banks the airplane such that the turn and slip indicator points to the standard rate turn mark and then uses a watch to time the turn. The pilot can pull out at any desired direction depending on the length of time in the turn. A rate half turn is normally used when flying faster than 250 kt. The term rate two turn used on some low speed aircraft. Angle of Bank formula The formula for calculating the angle of bank for a specific True Airspeed is:
