Today was the first time that I’ve encountered ATC using the holding pattern (I think it was IFATC solocup). I LOVE it! That the pattern the controller wants you to follow shows up on your map is really cool and adds tremendous realism to the sim!
Great job to the devs! And outstanding work from IFATC solocup on approach into YSCB!
It depends. Holding pattern are not used so much because they are not for fun but they have a specific purpose. I have to agree with you that it’s a really nice and helpful feature for both ATCs and pilots :)
