CHAPTER SIX
LANDING PATTERN
Figure 6-1 Landing Pattern
600.
INTRODUCTION
This chapter discusses the procedures and operations required for the T-6A to enter, land, and
depart the landing pattern.
The landing pattern is a geometric racetrack course flown so that a landing approach may be
executed in a systematic sequence. The final approach/upwind and parallel downwind legs form
the sides of the racetrack pattern. These lines are joined together by the crosswind turn and
approach turn at the downwind end of the pattern.
During your contact and subsequent stages of training, you will operate in a variety of landing
pattern environments. A defining characteristic of a particular pattern is whether or not there
exists an operating control tower. For example, Sherman Field is a tower-controlled field,
whereas the Barin Outlying Field (OLF) is uncontrolled. You will also see operations at civilian
fields, perhaps both controlled and uncontrolled. Operations at civilian uncontrolled airports are
beyond the scope of this manual and won't be presented (refer to the Aeronautical Information
Manual (AIM)). Much of the terminology and basic operations are similar in the different
pattern environments. Pay close attention as you progress through this chapter and your training
to the minor, but significant, differences between them.

LANDING PATTERN TERMS
These terms generally flow in the order you will see them from entry to exit from the pattern.
Initial: A point two miles (or as defined by local procedures) prior to the landing runway on
extended runway centerline. Entering through the initial point sets you up for a break over the
airfield.
