  11. Stop Bars
    Consist of a row of red undirectional, in-pavement lights installed along the holding position marking, they are required at runways with less than 600' RVR.
  12. Taxiway centering light
    Are green in pavement lights that guide ground traffic under low visibility conditions and during darkness
  13. Runway guard lights
    Either elevated or in pavement, will be installed at all taxiways that provide access to an active runway. They consist of alternately flashing yellow lights, used to denote both the presence of an active runway and indentify the location of a runway holding postion marking
  14. Geographical position markings
    Used as hold points or for position reporting. These check points or "pink spots" are outlined with a black and white circle and designated with a number or letter or both.
  15. Clearance Bars
    Consist of 3 yellow in pavement lights to denote holding positions for aircrafts. When used for hold points, they are co-located with geographic position markings.
  16. If for any reason the pilot becomes uncertain as to the correct taxi route he should ask for
    Progressive taxi instruction
  17. Position reporting points
    • 1. Identification
    • 2. Position
    • 3. Time
    • 4. Altitude/Flight level
    • 5. Name of next reporting point & time to be over it.
    • 6. Following reporting point
    • 7. Pertinent remarks if needed
  18. Radio communication failure what do you squak
    7600
  19. Maximum holding speeds
    • 0 to 6000'. =. 200 kts
    • 6,001 to 14,000 = 230 kts

  28. Reporting points (ATC all times)
    • 1. Vacating an assigned altitude for a knewly assigned one
    • 2. Unable to climb or descend at least 500' per minute
    • 3. A missed approach
    • 4. Change in true airspeeds of 5% or 10 kts, whichever is greater from that filed in the flight plan.
    • 5. Time and altitude reaching a holding fix or clearance limit.
    • 6. Leaving a assigned holding fix.
    • 7. Any loss of navigation or communications capability
    • 8. Any hazardous weather encounter & safety to flight
  29. The 4 basic parts to a holding fix.
    • 1. The fix at which to hold
    • 2. The course on which to hold
    • 3. Direction that identifies the course
    • 4. Time to expect further clearance.
