This procedure will only be used at those locations with an operational control tower and will be subject to ATC approval. After ATC approval of the option, the pilot should inform ATC as soon as possible of any delay on the runway during their stop-and-go or full stop landing.
    • 2. For proper helicopter spacing, speed adjustments may be more practical than course changes.
    • 3. Read back of hold short instructions apply when hold instructions are issued to a pilot in lieu of a takeoff clearance.
