Cool approach at Lga

Tue Jul 04, 2017 2:59 am

On Saturday flew into Lga, runway 4-22 was closed. Flew approach to 22 and sidestep to and landed on runway 13. Are all the turns due to conflicts with JFK or the buildings and bridges on final?

That would be a circle to land, not a side step.

Flight number? I'd be curious to better visualize this approach.

I've done it twice in the last few years, both times on a Saturday in a 321. You fly the 22 ILS to about 1100-1200 feet and turn right into a left downwind leg for 13. On the second one I kept the base leg just west of the shoreline; you end up rolling out on final about 400-500 feet above the water. Sporty and more challenging than the Expressway Visual to 31, mainly because it's rarely used.
