Learn to Fly a Circuit Pattern: You are the Pilot-in-Command!

Flying a circuit pattern in the Cessna 172 is an integral and foundational skill for any aspiring pilot. Essentially, a circuit is a rectangular pattern that pilots use to take off, fly around the airport, and land, all while maintaining consistent altitude and direction.

In the Cessna 172, pilots begin by taking off and climbing to 1,000 feet above the airport elevation.

As you reach the end of the runway, a 90-degree turn is made to the crosswind leg, followed by another turn to the downwind leg, parallel to the runway. Maintaining a consistent altitude and speed is crucial here. Upon reaching abeam the runway threshold, prepare for landing by reducing speed, adding the first stage of flaps, and descending. Two more turns — one onto the base leg and another onto the final approach — guide the aircraft back to the runway for a smooth landing.

Flying the circuit in the Cessna 172 is a harmonious blend of coordination, observation, and understanding, offering pilots a comprehensive feel of the aircraft’s behavior during various phases of flight.
