Hi all. Lately I have been seeing an error that many pilots are doing, even on expert, which is not holding short correctly. Not holding short correctly in real life can easily result in a collision.
Above: Incorrect hold, in this image you are holding short of an *ILS Critical area.
Above: Incorrect hold, in this image you have passed the hold short line, meaning you are on the active runway.
Above: Correct Hold.
*ILS Critical Area: Since the ILS needs a clear line of ‘sight’ with the aircraft, holding infront if this can sometimes interfere with the ILS signal, you only hold short of this line, however, if instructed by ATC, which is not available in IF right now.
Please also note that only once you have entered the runway (crosses the hold short line) should you turn on your strobe lights.
