I can't get my holding pattern timing to work!
As I was preparing for a lesson with an instrument student on holding patterns the other day, I got to thinking - why does the timing seldom seem to work out with several recent students? How bad could my teaching be? As a refresher, for most non-RNAV holdi...

Sometimes this instrument stuff just doesn't make any intuitive sense, does it? You’ll see an
approach chart with minimums like these:     The LNAV MDA is lower than the LNAV/VNAV DA! We “assume”

Flying "teardrop" procedure turns
An interesting situation was brought to my attention a few
