Hey y’all, here is a suggestion of mine and I would like your opinion.
I have noticed when I am controlling approach or center, and I give someone a heading to turn to, I always wish that the autopilots would turn sharper than 20 degrees. This would increase the rate of turn so they arrive to the assigned heading faster than normal. Now, being a pilot in real life, I understand that a steep turn at higher altitudes when cruising at faster air speeds is not realistic, or safe. So here is my 2 cents. Keep the standard 20 degree autopilot bank angle above 10,000ft. Below 10,000ft, automatically switch to the increased the bank angle of 25 degrees to allow Approach controllers to vector aircraft tighter and closer to the airport to increase flow rates into an airport. Any objections? Thanks!
