How to enter an holding pattern

Recommended Posts

The method of flying a holding pattern with the G1000 as implemented: 

  1. Have the holding fix as the next waypoint (i.e., you are navigating to that fix)
  2. Press the OBS softkey on the PFD to suspend waypoint sequencing
  3. Adjust the inbound course using the CRS knob to be the inbound track of the holding pattern
  4. Fly inbound legs along the depicted track
  5. Fly outbound legs parallel to the depicted track and time your legs

You can't tell G1000 to depict a holding pattern in your flight plan, but it will fly a depicted hold / procedure turn as part of an instrument approach / missed approach.
