IFR Departure Procedures - QT

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.
