How to Hold Short Correctly

Just a quick tutorial from me.
How to hold short correct:
I’ve seen a lot of people not holding short correct, and if it happens on advanced server it might lead to ghosting, therefore I’m helping you!

To hold short correct you may not have any part of your plane over the hold short line. You plane should be as the 1st picture below.
You should NOT hold short buy having your nose wheel at the hold short line, as it will be a runway incursion, and might lead to ghosting.

Hope it helps😌
Happy Flying!✈️

And most of the time I have to Holdshort for people that don’t even “announce inbound” so basically you can say that I “get stuck in traffic”

It’s so annoying when I see this on Advanced just like using strobe lights on a taxiway…

A small difference in those pictures

What if there is 2 lines?

Not just your nose wheel but your whole plane needs to be before the hold short line. If your nose wheel were on the line, your nose would be behind it ;)
