I am a student pilot with around 30 hours of flying right now. I am yet to solo and I am currently in the final stages of closed circuit practice.
Overall, my pattern work is good. However, maintaining the perfect "rectangular" circuit gets tricky for me when facing strong quarterly crosswinds (10 knots gusting 16).
I guess its the visualizing the wind that really gets me confused. I set the heading bug to sort reference where the wind is coming from which helps a lot.
But just wondering if I could get more tips on this. Anyone else had the same issue during their student days?
I fly a Cessna 172S.
