ATC Command: I’ll call your base

I don’t know what ATC means when he says “I’ll call your base” can anyone of you help me please?

ATC is telling you to stay on your downwind leg. You can make your base turn (turn that puts you 90 degrees perpendicular to the runway) when he says ‘Turn Base’.

Stay on the downwind leg until the controller says “turn base”.

The controller is usually trying to guarantee spacing to get some departures out.


This is why I love the forum I had the same question…great question and responses. Too bad most don’t use the forum but will go to the IFFG
