Fly the arrival pattern shown below following
the red line. Always land to the north.
This overhead pattern affords the pilot the
opportunity to check the runway (some aircraft
don't have radios and you won't see them on
downwind or base), and check the windsock.
It also allows anyone on the ground a chance to
see that an aircraft is approaching and move
away from the runway. If radio-equipped,
transmit your position and intentions on
Turn left crosswind
as shown over the north end of the runway.
Making your turn farther north will interfere
with the Lenora Park traffic pattern 1mi north.
Enter a normal left downwind. At this
point, the tall trees at the west edge of the
runway will obscure your view of the runway.
However, you can use the two small lakes at the
south end of the runway as a reference for the

runway as you turn final. We recommend
that you consider the use of the short field
approach technique for your aircraft. As
you clear the tall trees on final, you should be
stabilized on your desired approach airspeed and
in a position to touch down within the first
quarter of the runway. If not, go around
and re-enter the pattern. Delaying a
go-around past this point may be unsafe due to
the tall trees at the north end of the runway.
Always take-off to the south. For noise
abatement, departing aircraft will fly a 140
degree magnetic heading until reaching 1,500'
MSL prior to turning on course.
transmit your departure intentions prior to
takeoff roll (those on downwind and base cannot
see you because of the trees)
Headwinds/Tailwinds: If you
determine, as Pilot-In-Command, that existing
wind and/or weather conditions are unsafe for
our "land north, take-off south" runway, you
should consider the airport closed and wait for
more favorable flying conditions.
