FAA adopts "line-up and wait"

The US based aviation agency FAA adopted the ICAO standard for ATC clearances to enter the runway. The command "(taxi into) position and hold" is replaced with "line-up and wait" now - which was already used at most non-US airports. FlightGear pilots and controllers are requested to bring this change in practice.

Read the official announcements at the FAA website.
