Hi

Is it possible to show the actual circuit and/or approach paths at a landing/departure point? The below image indicates that the circuit is to the south, but it would be useful if it drew out the actual circuit and/or approach paths with circuit heights. Thanks.

Do you have reason to believe there is an "exact" circuit pattern at that particular airfield?

In the UK, exact circuits are the exception rather than the rule (the opposite of in Germany for example). There are sometimes noise abatement areas to take note of, but pilots are expected to fly a circuit appropriate to their aircraft performance.

Looks Coventry only has the two depicted arrows for traffic circuits and the standard overhead join - the UK does have brain active pilots in lieu of strange drawn traffic circuits Smile.

Sorry, I'm learning at Denham which has an explicit circuit. I haven't done a navigation exercise to Coventry yet and had just assumed everyone had defined patterns! How can I show the defined circuit at Denham?

Denham is indeed an interesting case. It appears they published their circuits regulations in textual only. I wonder how many fields do the same? Yes, that is potential danger due to contemporary lack of reading habits.

Unless there is an official diagram somewhere, or an airfield has provided us directly with such information, we cannot consider that an airfield has an explicit circuit pattern and therefore only provide direction and level information.

You could run a grep on the airports AD 2.22 to look for circuits, there would be official enough to be necessary to check for the pilot ... Many growing pilots celebrate the decreasing lack of reading habits anyways and only do Comic book style flight preparation on pictures.

Tim. Were you aware that the circuits for Derby depicted in SD don’t conform to those given in the briefing sheet on their website?

Not personally; I can flag this up to the right person though.

Markus, although AD 2.22 often describes circuits in terms of height, that isn't the place where a pictorial representation might be found.

They've posted a picture of their circuit here.
