Re: [climber71] Hanging out in the Holding Area.

In reply to:
Hello,

Am in the AFF Program just completed the Cat D1. Learning new things, so this may appear silly, But want to get it right. When one tells you to hang out in the holding area, 3,000 AGL feet to 4,000 feet AGL. What things, turns, applying the brakes, do you do to stay in the holding area?

Thanks

Practice full turns, half turns, half-braked flight and full flares.

Also start training your eyeballs for altitude. Look at your altimeter then look at the ground to see what that altitude looks like.
