Question about the term: ‘pattern’

This might be a dumb question, but can someone explain to me what ‘pattern’ and ‘pattern work’ mean? I hear them all the time but I don’t understand the term.

This may be helpful

Well a pattern is basically a flight that flies around the airport in a rectangular way. So its also like a “pattern” you’ll see when you study maths and I guess thats why its called “pattern work”. All you need is linked above by @TimShan05 I believe.

Patterns are series of legs around the Airport. These legs are one of the most important things in aviation. You might wanna consider learning about it if you don’t already know cause it is very important.

There are no such things as dumb questions ;)


Yeah, there are only dumb answers
