I was wondering if some of the more experienced jet pilots can helped me out. I'm pretty new on the jet, I've got a few hundred hours now. Most of the time, I've never had trouble turning base to final on course. However, there are 2 situations where I have been overshooting the final course. First, I've flown to a few airports where the ILS has been OTS and had to do a visual approach. On base, I might get a 20 kt tailwind. The base turn to final is at a distance greater than 10 NM or so. So, it's really difficult to see the final approach course visually. Also, the left turn to final compounds the problem because the captain blocks the view of the runway. This is a lot greater problem in a jet where the cockpit is bigger than in a light twin or GA plane. Second scenario is at small Class C or D airports. Sometimes, the controllers aren't as experienced and try to keep you fast and "slam" you into the approach. Instead of a downwind-base-final, they'll almost give you a 180 to the final. Well, sometimes, when you're doing that turn, even with a 30 deg. bank, you recognize that you're overshooting final but it's to late. Any suggestions?
