Lesson Quicktakes cover the items that should be memorized from each of the wifiCFI Lessons. They do not cover all of the lesson details in-depth.
TYPES OF DEPARTURE PROCEDURES:
Obstacle Departure Procedure (ODP) = Climbs the pilot up to a safe altitude within the vicinity of the airport.
Standard Instrument Departure (SID) = Climbs the pilot on a course (North, East, South, West, etc.).
STANDARD TAKEOFF MINIMUMS (PART 91 OPERATIONS):
Minimum Visibility = None.
Minimum Climb Gradient = 200 FPNM.
CONVERTING FPNM TO FPM:
The Formula = (Groundspeed X FPNM)/60 = FPM.
CLIMB IN VISUAL CONDITIONS
If a pilot cannot meet the minimum climb gradient for a departure, he/she may still be able to depart if they can meet the “Climb In Visual Conditions” (VCOA) requirements listed on the Departure Chart.
TEXTUAL DESCRIPTIONS VS GRAPHICAL DEPICTIONS:
Textual Description = Mandatory.
Graphical Depiction = Optional.
