INSTRUMENT NAVIGATION
Figure 3
The instructions also state "left turns". Recall that you hold by radial tracking to the fix.
The fix is the 120R/29 DME. To hold into the fix, you would have to be flying from SE to
NW along the radial until reaching the fix. Of the remaining two holding patterns, one denotes
right turns; the other, left turns. It is obvious that you should choose the one on the bottom
(Figure 4).
Figure 4
Note that the arrow on the radial indicates travel toward the holding fix. Also note that any
aircraft flying this holding pattern would be making left turns.
Here is another example of a holding clearance:
"OF42, holding Southwest of the Marine Cherry Point 260R/25 miles, 10 mile legs.
Maintain 15,000'. Expect further clearance 2340Z.
In this clearance, you have not been given the outer limits of the holding pattern; however,
you have been given the direction of holding and the leg length. You know the fix is 25
DME, so the legs will be either from 25-35 DME or 15-25 DME. To determine where your
pattern will be, you must analyze further.
