PLEASE HOLD

WHEN TO NOTIFY ATC

A

s a new instrument-rated pilot, I enjoyed the "Please Hold"
article by Jamie Beckett (April 2015 Flight Training). However,
there was an error.
The Aeronautical Information Manual in section 5-3-3 states
that, "The time and altitude or flight level upon reaching a holding fix or
point to which cleared" constitutes a mandatory reporting point. This
does not mean after established in the hold, but actually upon reaching
the holding fix for the first time."
This is in contradiction with the text,
which states, "When you cross the fix
again and turn outbound, you can contact ATC to report you are established in
the hold." The error is also implied again
in the sidebar, "Talk: Notify ATC You Are
Established in the Hold." The notification should occur the first time you cross
the holding fix.
This misconception about hold reporting, although somewhat common, really
should not make it to print in Flight

Training. It might not seem like a big
deal, but the time difference (between
first and second crossing of the fix) will
be three to four minutes, which does
make a difference to ATC.
Additionally, primacy (learning things
right the first time) is very important
in aviation training. Thanks for your
continued work at supporting flight
training!
