Alcohol impairs your ability to quickly and methodically react to the crash and evacuate the plane. Never hold your infant or toddler on your lap. While it may be cheaper than buying a seat, your child is almost guaranteed not to survive if you are holding him or her. Get a seat for your child and use an approved child restraint system. Don’t get down on the floor of the plane. If there is smoke in the cabin, try to stay low, but do not crawl. You will likely be trampled or injured by other passengers attempting to escape in the low-visibility conditions.

Depending on where you enter the holding pattern, you will need to follow an entry procedure. If you are coming from 70° to the left (right for nonstandard patterns) of the holding course, use a Teardrop procedure. Coming from 110° to the right (or left if nonstandard), use the Parallel procedure. And from the remaining 180°, fly a direct entry. The entry procedures are outlined below: 1. Parallel Procedure. When approaching the holding fix from anywhere within sector (a), turn to a heading to parallel the holding course outbound on the nonholding side for the appropriate time, turn in the direction of the holding pattern through more than 180 degrees, and return to the holding fix or intercept the holding course inbound.

Then again, maybe not. o Tips • Make any adjustments to the controls slowly, and wait for the changes. Making fast or abrupt changes can get you out of control in a hurry. • • • • Before take-off, ask the Pilot in Command where the basic controls are. These should include instruments, control wheel/yoke, throttle, transponder, radio, and rudder/brake pedals.
