TURN PATTERN
The turn pattern is a series of constant AOB turns while maintaining altitude and airspeed. At
the instructor's discretion, the turn pattern may be started in slow or normal cruise, but is always
commenced from a cardinal heading. It consists of two 15º AOB turns in opposite directions for
30º of heading change, two 30º AOB turns in opposite directions for 90º of heading change, and
two 45º AOB turns in opposite directions for 180º of heading change. A smooth, continuous
reversal is made from one turn into another, eliminating a straight and level leg. Figure 5-6.
