How to sequence when aircraft is in the pattern?


This is when the user is in the Pattern Already and he/she needs to be sequenced.

PS. There are many instances, user may be number 7, traffic to follow may be on left Downwind.

Why do people think it’s hard?

Most probably because they don’t know patterns etc… Anyway, good tutorial.


This technique is useful when there are a lot of incoming aircraft at once and you’re not sure how they will sequence when landing is first requested. You can issue instructions on where to enter the pattern first (without sequencing), then issue a sequence later when it is clearer which number they will be.
