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.


We can either deliver the complete module if you are approved for LAHSO, or include in the landing distance section of the Regulatory module a training page and exam question that you are not approved.
There is no specific International Standard for Business Aircraft Operations (IS-BAO) requirement for the LAHSO module. 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. The module complies with the IS-BAO training requirement for "additional training that is required to ensure a safe operation" defined in Chapter 8 of IS-BAO.
