Gliders on 7, Airplanes on 7

Airplane Pattern in Green, Glider Pattern in Red

NOTE: Image is not to scale.

This case provides good separation between airplane and glider traffic. Fixed Wing will normally be operating on the north side of the airport with glider activity on the south side. The only opportunity for conflict would be simultaneous operations due to the close proximity between the landing surfaces.

Vertically, the glider glide-path should be well above the airplanes glidepath. So, the best approach is to attempt to time your approach so that you’re not arriving at the same time as the airplane.
