Gliders on 7, Airplanes on 14

Airplane Pattern in Green, Glider Pattern in Red

NOTE: Image is not to scale.

 

This case provides good separation between airplane and glider traffic. The primary opportunity for conflict is a departing airplane interfering with the 45-to-a-downwind glider traffic. Simply listen and watch carefully for departing aircraft and most issues can be avoided.
