- A bank angle > 45 degrees is considered an “upset,” putting the plane in a position that can lead to a loss of control.
- A pitch > 20 degrees can possibly be dangerous and cause the aircraft to stall (depends on many factors or course).
These are just a few examples of limits that most passenger jets have. Now why is it that the plane actually accepts input that will cause the aircraft to go beyond these limits? What possibly use could “diving” straight towards the ground or towards the sky have? Or having a high bank angle that will almost certainly cause stalling and loss of control?
