I’m currently in the process of making a mathematical function that calculates the time from the next waypoint that you need to begin a turn, in order to line up on the cross track of the next leg, because I’m fed up of being slightly late (or forgetting completely) and overshooting the turns completely. I plan on making an advanced auto-nav system with the Connect API once my GCSEs are out of the way.
I have the basis of the function, but I need some hard values to plug in: do all planes make a 360 in the same amount of time? I have heard of the ‘two-minute-turn’ but I’m just wondering if it is a standard system that is added to ALL planes or not.
I suppose I could set up a straight flight plan and go through every single plane making a 360, but that would take too long.
