Visualizing Holding Pattern Entries

Many IFR pilots struggle with holding pattern entries. They buy gizmos to solve the holding pattern puzzle, create custom hieroglyphs to sort out ATC instructions, or apply trigonometry to figure out the recommended entry for a particular hold. I’ve long preferred a visualization method that many instructors teach, and I’ve created a brief, self-paced PowerPoint presentation that takes you through the process step-by-step. This method helps you visualize a hold on the heading indicator or HSI. No math or drawing tools required.

You can download the PowerPoint show from the Pilot Goodies page of my website, or you can view it below.
