Figure 3C-78. Holding Airspeed and EFC Time Entry and Display
Table 3C-57. Holding Airspeed and EFC Time Entry and Display Procedure
The desired holding speed inserted.
EFC time inserted.
The CMD IAS holding speed appears on the Lateral Steering pages 3 minutes prior to arrival
at holding fix.
Further Clearance Time. The Hold page allows an
optional entry of the ATC EFC or planned departure
time from the holding fix. This permits more realistic
future waypoint ETA. If an EFC is entered (in
Coordinated Universal Time), all future waypoint ETA's
reference. If no EFC is entered or it is deleted, all
future ETA's are calculated as if no loiter time will be
spent in the holding pattern.
(9) Exiting the Holding Pattern.
(a) Cancellation. To cancel a holding
pattern, delete "" the pattern attribute next to the
waypoint on the Flight Plan page. A leg switch to the
next flight plan waypoint will occur when the fix is
crossed again, if automatic flight plan advancing is
selected. The hold data is defaulted after sequencing
and the hold attribute is removed from the waypoint.
(b) DirectTo Another Waypoint Other
than the Holding Fix. This removes the holding pattern
definition from the fix waypoint and resets the holding
pattern parameters to default conditions.
(10) Published Holding Patterns. A published
GPS approach in the flight plan may include several
holding pattern definitions as part of the procedure.
Published holding patterns are enabled on the Holding
Pattern page for the holding fix waypoint. To review
the holding pattern definition, select the right line
select key adjacent to the IAF or Missed Approach
Holding Point (MAHP) to access the Flight Plan
Waypoint page for that waypoint. Then, select the
right line select key for the pattern attribute to access
the holding pattern definition. The IAF and MAHP
holding pattern definitions are derived from published
When an approach procedure is inserted into the
flight plan, the holding patterns associated with the IAF
are disabled and the holding pattern associated with
the MAHP is automatically enabled. To enable an IAF
or FAF holding pattern, access the respective Holding
Pattern page and select the ENBL HLD line. Refer to
Figure 3C79 and Table 3C-58. To disable a
published holding pattern, enter a on the Flight Plan
page and delete the H attribute. Unlike the user
defined holding pattern, disabling the published
holding pattern does not delete the holding pattern
definition from the waypoint, but only disables
execution of the pattern at the holding fix. When the
attribute is deleted, the FMS will conclude the holding
pattern and immediately turn inbound to the holding fix
while annunciating, Exiting Hold."
