    Default "taxiing post" explanation

    Hi all,

    I am having difficulty to understand the ORB term "taxiing post". I think this is not a proper English - I suppose it is just "Czechlish":-)

    The full context is: "Landing on the left hand side of the flare path between the Chance light and the taxiing post."

    I am already familiar with the term Chance light, I need to understand only what "taxiing post" may be? I would expect it might be:

    1. place where the aircraft stops during taxiing to the runway before being allowed to enter the runway

    or

    2. dispersal point

    Any ideas much appreciated

    TIA

    Hi Pavel - your number 1 is spot on. Taxiing Post is what is nowadays a Holding Point, where aircraft wait to be called forward onto the runway in use.
