I've been practicing circling approaches in Homestead General Aviation Airport in Homestead, Florida (X51). I performed the RNAV (GPS) RWY 10 approach with circling minimums.
My questions are:
a) For example if the active runway is Runway 18, then how exactly is the circling procedure performed? Should I start circling after crossing the MAP (XAGUH), or before?
b) And if the active runway would be 36, then the circling procedure would be to enter a downwind, then a base and then a final. Until when should I maintain the Circling MDA?
