Making Right Traffic

by Jason Schappert

Maybe your story is similar to mine: My entire private pilot training was all standard left traffic patterns. Never anything out of the norm. Then one day as a 60 some odd hour private pilot while flying into a class Charlie airport I was told to “Enter a Right Downwind”

It sounds so simple yet it threw off my entire game. I remember turning right base and something just not “feeling right” Followed by a glance over at my turn coordinator realizing I was BEYOND uncoordinated! Before I fixed that I had already blown through final (The wing has a funny way about blocking the runway when making right traffic) :)

This video is right up there with my “How to Fuel an Airplane Video” Sometimes things that sound so simple really can give you more trouble when you’re actually asked to do them for the first time.

Enjoy It! – Jason
