Base leg is your last leg before you turn to final, when tower says they’ll call your turn you fly your downwind until they tell you to turn

  1. This command is given while you are on your downwind leg of the runway. It basically means the tower will tell you to turn base when they see fit.
  2. When this command is given, you Turn 90 degrees towards the subway, and then to final.
