Circling Approach

Recommended Posts

Heo!One of the most mysterious approaches for me is certainly a circling approach. I know that I should fly downwind leg with MDA, but when do I have to descent?Then the next question is when do I have to start turning into base? Is that defined or you do it by the feeling?I have read PMDG flight training for 737 but I can't find answers to those two questions.Thank you,Nejc
