Trying to stay fresh on instrument regs, and I'm reviewing when you are able to bypass a procedure turn. I'm reading that if you perform a teardrop entry for a hold, you may. Does that mean you have to do the entire hold before proceeding the approach when you do a parallel entry?
I suspect you are thinking of AIM 5-4-8 (b)(2) [page 5-4-31], which states:
- When a teardrop procedure turn is depicted and a course reversal is required, this type turn must be executed.
If so, have a look at the Instrument Flying Handbook, page 7-31. The teardrop procedure turn is not referring to the same thing as a teardrop entry into a hold-in-lieu-of-procedure turn, it's something different entirely.
