There is an interesting simulation and comparison of EM style 海灣 turn and split-s reversal turn. The conclusion drawn is in favor of the EM style.
阿邦,Donny 仲有你兩個未轉海灣飛法咋,點睇啊?

Hi Stanley,

Thanks for sharing,but I found that was somewhat misleading at the outset.
I have the same opinion with post # 13 and 14 upon watching the video. Besides, the paths were in 2D dimension and you must add a factor of 1.4 during the turn in EM to get the correct path length.

Lastly, I might change to 江南 style !

Skip that hypothetical simulation ! Simply re-look into the winning style in terms of practical & proven :

VR2004, VR2006, VR2010
TR2010, TR2011
WC2012

I don't think the distance make much difference, if there are any.
The style to use should match with the location and wind condition.
However, EM is more forgiving than reversal style. :lol:

Sometimes, a simple Bank & yank is better :idea:


VR2004, VR2006, VR2010
TR2010, TR2011
WC2012
They are 海灣飛場

EM was called 海灣飛法 in HK.
Why? because it is better for this type of location.

I think VR2006 at Scotland and TR 2010 at MOS are not 海灣 slopes and suitable for both EM and Split-S style but EM style wins at both occasions.

EM is a modified or improved 海灣 style.
