199 Max talks about the accident rate, common mistakes, and offers tips for flying IFR circling approaches. ICAO says circling approaches have 25 times the risk of a straight-in approach with vertical guidance. The size of the protected circling area changed in 2013. In the circling area, TERP requires a 25° bank angle. Pilots often fly a downwind that’s too close and overshoot the base to final turn.
