Dear friends and flightstudents, welcome back to my channel. Today's video is a very important one in regards on how to establish holding entries. With the fastest and most fail safe technique, using your thumb and a compass rose/heading indicator.

I´ll show you how to extract the important outbound course for this easy technique and then how to use your thumb and place it accordingly onto your heading indicator.

Important things to remember whilst using this technique. Imagine that you're tracking towards the navigational aid you should hold over. Meaning the numbers you read out at the top of your heading indicator is the heading you're flying towards the fix. Draw an imaginary line from the center of the compass rose to that heading. Now if its a standard holding use your RIGHT thumb, as you are requested to perform RIGHT turns. So place your RIGHT thumb, at at 90 degree angle of your current heading, for example 200°, your thumb should be at 290°, then move your thumb upwards, so that you cover 20 degrees, so the bottom of your thumb is on the 290° line, and the top is at 270°, draw a line across and through the center of the rose, so you end up at 090° (-180 degrees). You know have divided you compass rose into three sectors. Memorize: Above your thumb is a teardrop entry , opposite your thumb is a parallel entry, and below your thumb is a direct entry. Now place your outbound course into your compass rose, for example 300°, check which sector its in, Teardrop sector, and that's your entry procedure for that holding.

Memorize:
RIGHT turns - RIGHT thumb
LEFT turns - LEFT thumb

90 degrees plus ( if you have to perform RIGHT turns)
90 degrees minus ( if you have to perform LEFT turns)

Cover 20 degrees with your thumb, and draw imaginary line.

ABOVE thumb - TEARDROP entry
OPPOSITE thumb - PARALLEL entry
BELOW thumb - DIRECT entry

Place OUTBOUND COURSE into the compass rose and check which sector its in!

Its doesn't get any faster than that!!!

STORY:
During my screening assessment in the simulator, I often used this technique to quickly determine the entry holding, as flying a holding is a minimum requirement for many airline screenings. As you can "use" the examiner next to you as an autopilot for calculations etc. and handed over the controls, pointed my thumb at the heading indicator, and called out the entry procedure in under 10 seconds and regained control. Very often the examiner was blown away how fast I was able to determine the holding entry, that I didn't even had to fly the holding, cause I gave him the impression, "This guy knows his stuff".

Use the examples at the end to train this technique! Don´t forget to hit pause, immediately after the example is shown!

Thanks for watching, all the best your "Captain" Joe
