We proudly present to you from Alan Wright (Teignmouth) his “hold advisor” ….. a quick and easy means of obtaining the correct join path to fly to enter a hold. You always wanted to fly the perfect holding? From now on this is possible with the “Holding Pattern Calculator for Virtual Pilots, courtesy of SWFSG (South West Flight Simulation)”.

According to Alan Wright aka Teignmouth “copy the HoldAdvisor.amw file to your PC; rename (right click and select RENAME from pop-up menu) the HoldAdvisor.amw file to be HoldAdvisor.exe; you WILL get a stability warning but say yes; create a shortcut if wanted. Downloaded .exe (executable) files may trigger your PC security. Sorry, at the moment only for Windows X-Plane simmers.”

“The software is totally stand-alone and so can be placed anywhere accessable, either on or off the PC. Note there is no link to the flight sim and so it does not know where you are or any details of the hold or the ambient wind conditions so you still have to do some work. I think use is self-explanatory, however, there is a help button which gives some clues.”

Then you must check out our dedicated tutorial page for more information as well as how to download it. Remember, only available for registered X-Plained.Com simmers!
