What is a hold for release?
A phrase used by ATC (air traffic control) to delay an aircraft for traffic management reasons (i.e., weather, traffic volume, obstructions on runway).
What does IFR release mean?
At the end of the enroute segment of an IFR flight. What it means: This is a fundamental shift in control authority. When you hear this clearance, the air traffic controller is releasing you from ATC control and directing you to follow the approach procedure printed on your approach plate.
What is clearance in aviation?
Clearance. A clearance issued by ATC is predicated on known traffic and known physical airport conditions. An ATC clearance means an authorization by ATC, for the purpose of preventing collision between known aircraft, for an aircraft to proceed under specified conditions within controlled airspace.
What does EDCT mean?
EDCT is the runway release time (“Wheels Off”) assigned to aircraft due to Traffic Management Initiatives (TMIs) that require holding aircraft on the ground at the departure airport.
What is a void time?
CLEARANCE VOID IF NOT OFF BY ( TIME )− Used by ATC to advise an aircraft that the departure clearance is automatically canceled if takeoff is not made prior to a specified time. The pilot must obtain a new clearance or cancel his/her IFR flight plan if not off by the specified time.
What are the two types of SIDs?
There are three main types of SIDs: pilot-nav SIDs, radar vector SIDs, and hybrid SIDs. A pilot-nav SID is a SID where the pilot is primarily responsible for navigation along the SID route.
Is VOR required for IFR?
They are not considered ” required” for IFR flight, but most IFR routes can be flown using Victor airways and hence VORs. VOR approaches are now more deprecated but plenty exist – I just did one a few days ago! A VOR approach is like a localizer approach – non precision, with higher minimums.
What does Grabcard stand for?
GRABCARD (IFR Minimum Equipment) Radio/Navigation Appropriate For Flight. Attitude Indicator.

How do I check ATC delays?
FAA has three easy ways for you to check airport status and get delay information, in real time as changes happen:

- On your mobile device, go to www. faa.gov/mobile. [Supported Devices]
- Sign up for email updates to your wireless device, pager, phone, PDA, or email address.
Are flight plans public?
As a result, flight data collected by the FAA in its air traffic control system – except for military and sensitive government flights – is public information. Web sites such as FlightAware post the data online, allowing anyone to observe the system and follow most planes virtually in real time.
