Airways Navigation Flight Procedures
Procedures for performing a circling approach/missed approach
NOTE: Circling minimums are for the runway approach flown,
not to the landing runway.
Published circling minimums provide obstacle clearance
when pilots remain within the protected area
Remain at or above circling minimums until the aircraft is in
a position to descend to a landing on the intended runway
(1) Normal rate of descent
(2) Normal maneuvers
(1) Maneuver the shortest path to the base or downwind
leg, as appropriate, considering existing WX conditions
NOTE: There is no restriction from passing over the
airport or other runways.
(2) Circling maneuvers may be made while VFR or other
flying is in progress at the airport.
NOTE: Standard left turns or specific instruction from
the controller for maneuvering must be considered
when circling to land.
(3) At airports without a control tower, it may be desirable
to fly over the airport to observe wind, turn indicators,
and other traffic which may be in the runway or flying in
the vicinity of the airport
