  • 7-1-4. VISUAL HOLDING OF VFR AIRCRAFT

    TERMINAL

    When it becomes necessary to hold VFR aircraft at visual holding fixes, take the following actions:

    1. Clear aircraft to hold at selected, prominent geographical fixes which can be easily recognized from the air, preferably those depicted on sectional charts.

      NOTE: At some locations, VFR checkpoints are depicted on Sectional Aeronautical and Terminal Area Charts. In selecting geographical fixes, depicted VFR checkpoints are preferred unless the pilot exhibits a familiarity with the local area.

    2. Issue traffic information to aircraft cleared to hold at the same fix.

      • or
      • PROCEEDING TO (fix) FROM (direction or fix).
