At YRED i've been instructed to turn xwind at 500'...
Pyrotek, RAC choose to do this because of noise abatement (there are a lot of loud, rich, noisy residents at Scarborough).

What I DO have a problem with is the LOSERS that take it upon themselves to inform me that I haven't done the correct procedure.

ie. Yesterday, a straight in approach at CTAF, called at 9 miles, 5 miles, then 2.5, for a number of reasons. Only to be greeted with VH-XXX "the correct procedure for a straight in approach is to call at 5, 3 & 1 miles." I said thanks for that Mr. Air Traffic Control.

If you're not manly enough to say who you are on the radio when attempting to tell someone they have done the wrong thing (in your opinion), stay off the damn radio! rant over.
If they are going to have a go at you XXX, they should learn the procedures also. There is no 5 mile call - 10, 3 & 1 only.
