    When you reach the holding fix, you note the time or start your timer and turn to the appropriate entry heading for the hold.  There is plenty of protected airspace as long as you don’t exceed the maximum speed permitted in the particular hold. For a timed holding pattern, most of them will be one minute holds.

    Well according to the old saw “the 5T’s” you would turn first and then time. But it means turn, it doesn’t mean established – so the difference is minimal……

    Turn – Turn to the Course Heading
    Time – Start the Time
    Twist – Tune the Radio (VOR etc) and/or Twist the CDI
    Throttle – Reduce the throttle; Go Down (descent) or Slow Down
    Talk – Talk to the ATC
