Dep Procedures

Recommended Posts

Ok, I have another question.At my local airport Tower will clear you for takeoff and to fly runway heading, then when we contact Departure,Departure will tell us to fly direct to a common waypoint or to turn on a heading and fly direct to the common waypointExample:TOWER: xxxx fly runway hdg climb maintain xxxx' cleared for takeoffPILOT: (Repeats transimision)TOWER: xxxx contact departure on xxx.xxonce we contact departure, they will say:DEPARTURE: xxxx turn hdg xxx direct (waypoint) climb and maintain xx,xxx.So what I'd like to know is, what do I need checked in the Dep Procedures box in order toget tower to tell me fly rwy hdg, ect.?Should I have No Dep Proc checked and No Alt Restrictions checked?Or is RC not able to direct this way?Thanksmorparrtse

Please see page 43 - TOWER and then read about DPs starting on page 107. note that using NOTAMS voids any initial heading instruction.No DP means you will get vectors but if your first waypoint is within 30 nm then RC only offers with or without altitude restriction DPs meaning you will navigate on your own.

Thanks ronzie.I did read the manual, I just wasn't sure. I'll read those pages again.I guess I should also try different ways to see the different outcomes.
