Conducting traffic pattern and landing training at non-towered airports presents an instructor and student a challenging environment. The training must be effective in all aspects of the maneuvering and landing and at the same time safety is an overriding concern. Some flight training organizations conduct training in "traffic saturated" environments. The potential for mid-air collisions at these airports is a major concern.
