what are these downwind and upwind so on?
Hope this explains things! Left downwind is left side of the runway!
As mentioned above.
When inbound you will always first enter the airports pattern. From there you go to final and land. Tower’s pattern entry instruction informs you how to approach the airport.
When you request departure ‘remaining in the pattern’ you request to not depart Tower’s airspace but you remain in the airport’s pattern. A tutorial on this can be found here.
