Readers Weigh in on "Cones of Confusion"

The March 2010 CALLBACK (#363, Pilot and ATC Cones of Confusion) stimulated more reader feedback than any issue we've published in recent years. In this issue we looked at several common IFR approach situations where (according to recent ASRS reports) confusion may exist, including:

- Making a Procedure Turn
- Making a Hold-in-Lieu-of Procedure Turn
- Expecting a Straight-In Approach

This month we'd like to share some of the responses we received to the three IFR scenarios described.
