How to request hold on Unicom?

I was wondering how do i request a hold on Unicom? I was coming into Heathrow but I was to high and there’s no option for request hold

Well if there is no ATC , just UNICOM then you just perform your own Hold Pattern.

If you are coming in too high and hot ( fast) have a look at this video from Capt Joe on how to claulate when to descend so that you don’t get caught out!

the best way to descend if your too high and on final is to do some small s turns or make left or right 360 degree turns

Yep, just maintain a slower refrence speed and bring it down slowly. Missed approaches also work but that depends on if you’re too lazy to input It into your fpl.

Unicom is for announcing inbound, pattern legs and runway usage. IRL you don’t even need to use it to announce taxi from my experience.
