Perform an aerodrome circuit[PDF]
As we fly VFR, visual meteorological conditions corresponding to the flown airspace must be observed.
On this page, we focus on flying the circuit.
For proper instructions on how operating your aircraft, we encourage you reading the practical flight techniques part of the beginner level.
We take these two parameters as references for our practical study.
Try to remain over the runway as much as possible.
Continue climbing up to 1,000 feet AGL. Upon reaching this height, you are ready to turn to downwind leg.
We suggest that you maintain an airspeed of 1.45 times stall speed.
In Cessna 172, it will give you roughly 80 knots indicated airspeed.
Take care of the effect of the wind.
Usually, add or subtract 1 second per headwind knot.
Use PAPI if available.
