Do planes lose altitude when turning?

Increased drag slows the airplane. Also, in a turn, there's less area of lift under a wing, causing it to lose altitude. However, to compensate, pilots angle the airplane up as well as increase thrust (speed) to maintain a constant altitude during a turn.

How to Calculate Bank angle during level turn?

Bank angle during level turn calculator uses Bank angle=acos(Weight/Lift force) to calculate the Bank angle, The Bank angle during level turn is given by the inverse cosine of the ratio of weight to lift of the aircraft. Bank angle and is denoted by Φ symbol.
