Question details

An airplane of weight W and wing area S flies level at speed V while executing a turn of constant radius R. The wing can pull a maximum lift coefficient CLmax before stall. Derive the formula for the turn radius versus flight speed at this maximum lift coefficient. This radius represents the tightest turn the airplane can make at the given flight speed.
