I have got several questions regarding pattern:
Do you always have to enter downwind with 45°, also when you are approaching straight to the runway? (Would you have to fly a circle around the airport in order to enter the downwind leg with 45°)
Do big planes like ERJ 195 and bigger always these pattern too?
I have heard that real pilots don’t always fly the standard pattern… Does somebody have a picture of such an approach (for example the pilot enters the instantly 45° angle final)?
PS: I know my English isn’t the best :D but I am really confused if you always have to fly the standard pattern no matter from where you heading and if you do the same pattern with big aircrafts too…
