    Most of them used to be round(ish), right?

    The airplanes are going the wrong way, should takeoff counter clockwise to offset p-factor and tq.

    But then you would be using left rudder to maintain centerline. I would think that would be an issue at rotation. Also would only apply to those of us flying single engine.

    I think they should make revolving runways. That way the airport could always be oriented into the wind. I think Henning designed and built a revolving hangar floor once. This would just be a slightly larger scale.

    Are you flying an airplane that turns backwards? IDK about your plane but if I power up and leave my feet flat on the floor it wants to go left on its own.

    Good point. I would just be more concerned about rotating with left rudder. Clockwise and you are already on the right rudder.

    I have been to some landing strips that were not straight. One had a 45 degree turn in it, but there was at least a beginning and an end. On this circle, how would one determine which part to land on? Maybe big different colored dots?
