I was flying back to my home airport, which is uncontrolled. I announced on CTAF that I was 10 miles out, then continued with subsequent closing distances. I also let other traffic know that I was going to enter the pattern with an overhead break to the left and joining the left downwind for the active runway. The only other aircraft in the pattern was doing T&G’s. To be safe they landed then taxied back... Do y’all think its safer to keep it simple and just do a normal entry instead of being a military wanna be overhead break? Ive also been at a towered airport where the controller called it an “initial”, which Ive learned/assumed was allowing a landing aircraft do the overhead break then joining the pattern. Does the term ‘initial’, equate to an overhead break?
