It's been 44 years since I obtain my private pilot cert and flow my last flight. Now retired, I want to fly again and working on becoming current..
Here's the question:
Say I am 15 miles due west of an airport who's active runway is 13 and I am told to "enter left downwind".
That would be on the opposite side of the airport. Do I fly directly over the airport to enter the pattern?
What is the proper way to enter this pattern?
