Left or right patterns can be confusing for some people as they have trouble getting themselves oriented with the runway. Thanks for the information.

Could you please make it bigger? I can´t see the words.

When do you ask for radar vectors and when do you ask for approach at a specific runway?

Good one by the way

See Flight Following / Radar Vectors / ILS approach / Check In What are the differences?

Another one…do I contact approach at my destination as soon as I take off and there is no departure/approach frequency at your starting airport?

No, you should contact approach when you’re about 40-50nm out. When tower tells you to change frequency, just switch to unicom :)

So switch to approach at approx 40 miles and request approach at like 15-20 miles from from destination
(made that up…seems like a good rule to follow…correct?)…

You got it :) Keep in mind that the distances may change from airport to airport though!
