Possible typo in I7 rating training notes

Postby sono » Wed Aug 01, 2018 3:12 pm

In regard to this paragraph

Options include entering on a right base for runway 22, or maneuvering west of the field to enter a downwind for runway 22.


I believe it should say
Options include entering on a right base for runway 22, or maneuvering west of the field to enter a downwind for runway 4

Am I correct ?

It's correct as written. It's assuming the winds are favoring rwy 22. Recall that it's right traffic for rwy 22.

Thank you Keith. I did fly this yesterday and did what you suggest.

My concern is that in IFR in low vis is that by "or maneuvering west of the field " you would have greater opportunity to loose sight of the field (or need greater vis than otherwise) for that procedure.

The need to maneuver west doesnt occur if you are in a postion to enter right base or left downwind for 04.

I understood that for circling you can only circle when visible with the environment and if you loose that you go missed.
