DescriptionCircle-to-land is a maneuver initiated by the pilot to align the aircraft with a runway when a standard straight-in landing from an instrument approach is not possible or desirable. Circle-to-land maneuvers must only be executed after ATC authorization has been obtained and the pilot has established the required visual reference to the airport. Note that the visual reference must be established and maintained.
