We received over 1000 responses to our question last week on non-towered airport traffic pattern entries. Almost half (48 percent) of those responding fly the traditional 45-degree downwind entry into these airports. A small group (2 percent) of our respondents prefer the crosswind entry technique, while 15 percent claim it all depends on the particular airport's location.
