Edenvale has been growing every year and has added new runways, taxiways and ramps. Edenvale Aerodrome has multiple runways which may be in use simultaneously… view this page to see the circuit patterns and airfield services.

CIRCUIT PATTERNS FOR SIMULTANEOUS OPS ON 13/17 & 31/35
Special procedures and precautions must be observed whenever runway 31 and 35 or runway 13 and 17 are in use simultaneously. In general terms, the basic circuit will be for 13/31 with pilots modifying their downwind, base and final legs slightly in order to use 17/35.
The circuit for 31 will be standard. An aircraft departing 35 with intention of remaining in the circuit will have to join the circuit for 31 and will do so by flying a crosswind leg for 31. The crosswind leg should be slightly further out than the position where an aircraft would normally turn to crosswind at 500 ft AGL after take off from 31. See diagram.
A pilot intending to land on 35 will join the circuit for 31 on arrival. The pilot may have a conflict with traffic ahead of him that is landing on 31. The several blue flight paths in the diagram describe the possible paths the pilot on 35 may have to follow to maintain separation with the aircraft ahead of him/her in the circuit. The pilot landing on 35 normally must maintain his/her sequence for landing and not use this “cutting the corner” flight path to land ahead of traffic ahead.
