For the report position feature like “ UNITED1 is on right downwind” I have heard some people say you use this when your right wing is facing the airport and some people say you use when you are on the right side of the airport. Same thing for right base and the left side. So which use of it is right?
I asked this question on my discovery flight last year, and I was told your wing facing the airport determines what it is.
So, if you are parallel to the airport with your right wing facing then you are on right downwind.
Thank you! I am thankful I have been doing it right😅
Take a look at this! It should help!
Glad to help!
Also, the picture does not show crosswind not upwind, but I think it’s pretty easy to get the idea.
