Circle to Land Life-Saving Tips
Circle-to-land approaches get a bad rap. Granted, they earned it by breaking a bunch of aircraft, and they can lure the unprepared out of bounds in an eye-blink. Yet to say, “I never circle-to-land ...” can be just as dangerous as going cavalier because circling approaches aren’t one-size-fits-all. Best case, a circling approach is essentially ending your instrument approach by flying a traffic pattern to the runway of your choice. We don’t think of joining the downwind in visual conditions as circling, but it is. Few people would call that an inherently a risky maneuver.
