Holding patterns


New Member
Is there any reason that the standard holding pattern is with right turns? Or was it chosen to be different from the standard traffic pattern direction on purpose?
You'd think they could at least make 'standard' standard. If it's left for traffic patterns, why couldn't they just have made holding patterns the same.... But noooooooooo.

Just leave it to the FAA to confuse the hell out of us pilots...
Government conspiracy I tell ya...
