I had a CFI-I student who failed his FAA Practical test on the flight because of a DME Hold.
The Instruction was as such:
Hold North East of the 6 DME on Radial 355 from Ormond VOR.
Since the Holding turns were not specified it would Imply a Right turn but in this example it was in fact a Left hold.
In the FAA order 7110 for ATC is was specified that the Controller must mention Left holds if it is not standard.
I am not saying that the failure was not fair, but I just want to get clarification.
I would appreciate if your answers came with references, thank you!
