The largest of the quadrants represents a Direct Entry, and it will be labeled RT or LT
correspond with the DIRECTION of turns in holding. After reaching the holding fix, simply
turn the aircraft left or right to approximate the racetrack pattern of the depicted holding
pattern (see Figure 15).
The final quadrant (which is generally larger than the teardrop and smaller than the direct
entry) refers to an O u t b o u n d Parallel entry and is labeled either RT or LT, opposite to the
direction of turns in holding.
Once you have crossed the fix, turn your aircraft to published heading for the outbound leg.
Fly this heading out to the outer OME limit, then turn toward the holding pattern and fly the
inbound radial (see Figure 16).
