We enter the local circuit on the initial stretch, so that we will have initially a tailwind (remember the correction applied with the twin rudders of the aircraft) and in the picture now you can see at forty five degrees, as we turn, runway 23, opposed to 05. At this moment we say on the radio "Romeo Juliet Uniform is on initial of zero five" and the tower comes back to us saying something like "Juliet Uniform please notify on turn from basic to final, slot one for landing."

And now we turn from the initial track to the one known as basic. We will have a crosswind of ten knots from the left at this point, and considering that the Ercoupe falls like a piano once you reduce power, instead of going to idle as we pass the landing spot laterally, we apply the reduction late at this point. With an Ercoupe you have either to do this or to descend with some power.
