Holding pattern / Entry method

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone

 

I was practicing on holding patterns today and I came up with a surprising experience.

 

I only practiced on COMPUTED holdings.

 

From what I experienced, the Bus is always using DIRECT entry in the holding pattern. As an example, I was flying HDG 055 to TABIL where I set a holding 280R. I was expecting a parallel entry but the Bus decided to go direct and turned left at TABIL (see pictures).

 

Is that possible to have offset/parallel entries ?

 

Thanks, have a good day

Thanks Mathijs

 

Just to make a correction on what I said above, I did NOT use the COMPUTER method. All my holding patterns used user-defined parameters.

 

Anyway, the entries were far different from what is shwon in the Thales user manual for the FM system (see images attached - I found the document on smartcockpit.com)

 

Cheers

I highlighted this some years ago and got the answer from mr. M that I had to fly the holding entry with manual input....

If you not can make a correct holding procedure You will enter an unsafe area ........

I hope You will look at this again and take action this time
