Gliders on 25, Airplanes on 32


Airplane Pattern in Green, Glider Pattern in Red

NOTE: Image is not to scale.

In this configuration, there are two primary opportunities for conflict during landing.

First, when entering the pattern, you may cross the downwind leg for 32. Airplanes there should be at approximately traffic pattern altitude (1200-ft MSL) so maintain a visual scan and avoid lingering or thermaling in that area.

During  base and final turns is another potential hazard.  Adjust timing if possible, stay above the airplane landing on 32, or turn glider base inside of the final leg for 32 if you can do so safely.
