    You can start descending on the approach has soon as you are 1) cleared for the approach and 2) on a published portion. Until you hit DEEPO, you can't descend on the approach.

    You can take the height above touchdown (HAT) of 354' AGL and divide it by 300 ft/nm to get 1.2 NM from the runway threshold.

  6. 6) Let's say you are inside the final approach fix when there's an abrupt wind change that favors runway 24. You elect to circle to this runway. Are the minimums you choose an MDA or DA, and what distance will keep you within the protected area? Your approach speed in your Cessna is 90 knots IAS.

    Circling minimums are always MDAs. As for CAT A aircraft, when you circle, you must remain within 1.3 NM from the runway threshold of any runway at the airport.
