Airport Traffic Pattern Entry And Exit - Learn To Fly Here
Using the FAA Airplane Flying Handbook, two methods for entering the airport traffic pattern are demonstrated. In addition to traffic pattern entries, two methods for exiting the pattern are also demonstrated with Microsoft Flight Simulator. Tips for operating in the traffic pattern are given as well as radio procedures which are given voluntarily and not required even when flying in a real traffic pattern.
The 45-degree entry and the midfield crosswind methods are demonstrated for entry.
