Want to fly a better traffic pattern? Rectangular course is 1 of 3 maneuvers a student pilot could be tested on during an FAA practical test for a Private Pilot's License. This ground reference maneuver will help a pilot become aware of wind direction and the effect wind has on the aircraft's ground track to maintain a rectangular course over the ground regardless of wind while in the airport traffic pattern.
