Aero-Terms are designed to be a daily reminder of the terms,
names, acronyms and explanations of the unique language that
populates the aviation world. Aerospace, sport aviation, fixed
wing, helo, you name it... it's all fair game.
Aero-Terms should serve as a quick but intriguing reminder of
the terms you may use every day, or an introduction to an aspects
of the Aero-World you may not yet be familiar with. ANN also
encourages readers to go beyond the FMI link, and further research
any intriguing terms.
Suggestions for future Aero-Terms are
ALWAYS welcome, as are additions or
discussion of the explanations given for each Aero-Term.
Hold In Lieu Of Procedure
A hold in lieu of procedure turn shall be established over a
final or intermediate fix when an approach can be made from a
properly aligned holding pattern. The hold in lieu of procedure
turn permits the pilot to align with the final or intermediate
segment of the approach and/or descend in the holding pattern to an
altitude that will permit a normal descent to the final approach
fix altitude. The hold in lieu of procedure turn is a required
maneuver (the same as a procedure turn) unless the aircraft is
being radar vectored to the final approach course, when "NoPT" is
shown on the approach chart, or when the pilot requests or the
controller advises the pilot to make a "straight-in" approach.
