With the depicted wind, which way will we be taking off and landing?
Takeoffs and Landings should always occur into the wind. This allows for better performance and increased aircraft controllability.
These leg names will be used to help communicate your location during flight training. This pattern is called left traffic, as all turns are made to the left. If the wind direction was reversed, we would flying a right traffic pattern.
When the winds are calm at the Fern Prairie Field, the preferred traffic pattern is LEFT TRAFFIC. This is specific to the Fern Prairie Field.
