I was following a conversation in another forum and the subject of blowing through final on your base to final turn came up. I was surprised at some of the suggestions as to what to do. Obviously, cheating the turn with rudder into a skid is a big no, no. But some suggested slipping over to get back on course, one or two said they would initiate a go around. I'm curious as to what the experts here do when it happens. I'm no expert, but I'll tell you what I do. Occasionally I will screw up the base to final turn, usually due to not anticipating a high cross wind at pattern altitude, sometime something distracts me like losing the traffic I'm supposed to be following. It doesn't happen often, but when it does it's easy to see as you go sailing through the runway centerline. What I do is just stay in the turn, coordinated, sometimes you can increase the bank, but I usually turn at about 20 degrees bank and never exceed 30 in the pattern. If I see the centerline blow by, I just keep turning until I'm back on centerline, then turn the other direction as necessary to stay on the center line. Never fails me. It seems to me pilots get unnecessarily clenched up over this leading to bad decisions and accidents. What say you, beside don't screw it up in the first place?
