I've been wondering a couple of things about flying to an airport. If navigation leads you to the center of the airport do you then fly over midfield at 1000' to get into the pattern or do you maneuver right before the airport to get in the pattern? Second question, if you want to observe the windsocks and find them way too small at 1000' what do you do to get a better look? Do you circle until you got them found and figured out? And when you throw the midfield flyover into this do you flyover at 1000' and then maneuver in circles around the airport to observe the socks? This is assuming a small airport where there's no traffic but maybe a cow or two nearby.
