Pattern Work at Norwood in the Cirrus SR20

After taking some time off to go to Oshkosh 2010, this was my first flight back. I decided that since I had been away from the plane for more than two weeks, I should focus on some pattern work. I flew quite a few trips around the circuit this day and overall the flight went well. I had one landing that was more of a bounce and required a go-around, but for the most part it was a good re-entry and practice flying the Cirrus. This particular video was a right pattern on Runway 28 and was probably my third approach and landing. You'll also notice that at pattern altitude it was a bit bumpy, but wind wasn't much of a factor on landing. There are three cameras and good ATC audio in this 1080p video
