This lesson introduces holding patterns from an instructional perspective. The instructor will simulate a student and the CFII-H candidate will simulate teaching various holding patterns, to include non-published holds, non-standard turns, and the various facilities utilized for holding. The lesson will conclude with the candidate teaching one instrument approach.



Completion Standards

During hold entries, the CFII-H, demonstrate accurate CDI interpretation and tracking, allowing no more than three-quarter-scale deflection of the CDI, discuss the proper holding entry, and successfully make a transition from the en-route segment to the holding pattern. During the holding pattern, the candidate should maintain an altitude of ±100 feet and airspeed of ±10 knots during tracking.
