Add Pattern direction to runways on the Kneeboard priintout

Robert P 3 years ago updated by Eric.Rush (Project Lead) 3 years ago 1

It would be helpful if on the kneeboard printout you list the pattern direction for each runway(simple LP/RP).  Recently ATC changed the runway a few miles from the airport due to a wind change and this would have been very helpful to just glance at the kneeboard.

Hello,

The AOPA Airports Kneeboards do include the traffic patterns. Traffic patterns are only listed if it is a Right traffic pattern. Otherwise, standard traffic pattern (Left) is assumed.

If an airport recently changed a pattern, it may not show on the Knneboard (or other listings) until the FAA pushes out the official update. We get updates every 28 days from the FAA.

Here is an example of how a right traffic pattern is shown on the kneeboard:
