    a turn

    Hi,

    What does "a turn" mean here?
    The area required for an airplane negotiating a turn is governed by the size of the nose wheel angle that is used.

    From the book "Airport Engineering"

    Thanks

    I've just figure out what it means. Thank you.

    I'm sad that you've abandoned aeroplanes, Tdol.
