Would not except 200 not answer as maximum holding speed below 6000 feet
For the hold in the missed approach at HXD a teardrop is an option and puts the aircraft in a better position after the first turn when returning to the fix.
I stopped flying 12 years ago. I missed two questions and feel pretty good about that.
Question 1 did not say you were cleared for the approach. A teardrop and hold unless and until cleared for the approach.
There is no FAR requiring to report entering a holding pattern. The AIM states that holding pattern entry “should” be reported. It should be remembered that nothing in the AIM is mandatory, unless backed up by FAR. You will never be violate due to a statement in AIM’s.
Many report holding pattern entry as a matter of habit. Very few report exiting a hold, although the AIM states that this “should” be reported as well.
Wow! Now I know why people say Read The Freaking Question. My two mistakes were from not reading carefully. Oops! On number two I thought I was flying from the opposite direction and the last one I don’t know what I was looking at. Next time, I’ll have a second cup of coffee and wait a little later before I attempt any of this. It upsets me because I knew both answers. Oh, well.
I haven’t flown for years and at 69 years of age i love the idea of doing an ifr course. Probably wouldn’t pass the medical though. Doing some private studying of the principles of ifr flight and really enjoy this website and its questions. Very well done to all.
