Land and Hold Short Operations

Land and Hold Short Operations
The LAHSO module reviews pilot responsibilities, best operating practices, and planning tools for pilots who are going to accept a land and hold short clearance. Over 250 Aviation Safety Reporting System (ASRS) reports were reviewed in the development of the module to learn the lessons from pilots involved in past LAHSO incidents. Runway signs and markings, landing distance information, Minimum Equipment List (MEL) considerations, weather, and required landing distance (RLD) for LAHSO are reviewed in the module.


If approved in Ops Spec A027 for LAHSO we will include the training module, tailored to your training program syllabus, in the Basic Indoctrination curriculums.
The module is not required by the International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) or Business Aviation Safety Consortium (BASC) standard. If you operate into airports like Boston Logan (BOS), Chicago O'Hare (ORD), Miami (MIA), or other airports that may issue a land and hold short clearance, you must be proficient in knowing what your responsibilities are.
