I reviewed the different holding pattern entry types: parallel, teardrop and direct. So for a holding pattern: 1. Identify the fix provided by ATC 2. Determine if standard (right turn) or left turn hold 3. If timed or DME legs given by ATC 4. Draw the hold on chart So let us say we have a direct entry, teardrop or parallel entry pattern and ATC gives us Cessna 12F hold west on the 210 Radial from ABC vortac and we are on a current heading of 120. How would we fly this hold? Most of the CFII I met so far lack the ability to explain and teach it! My understanding this far: 1. Use thumb method on the HI to determine how to enter it. Tune the first VOR OBS to inbound course which would be 210 TO for the ABC vortac and tune the second VOR OBS to the outbound radial of 300 which is the reciprocal of the inbound course.
