Getting past the departure ends
of the runways before making any turns isn't an issue for jets that dominate the traffic at Midway, but it could be a big deal in our piston.
Pilots must ensure that they perform the climb-out, including managing configuration, airspeed, and thrust changes such that the airplane remains above the plane generated by the climb gradient beginning from the departure end
of runway." Using FAA rules designed to ensure OEI obstacle clearance by limiting weight "does not necessarily guarantee that the airplane can meet the climb requirements on an instrument procedure."
As the airplane crossed the departure end
of the runway at about 500 feet agl, the engine began to lose power.
Bonus for Jepp users: You didn't fly a missed at DCA, but the ILS has some high-profile objects off the departure end
of the runway in P-56B.
I was at 500 feet off the departure end
of the runway.
He made a quick decision to lower the arresting hook and engage the departure end
The airplane went off the departure end
of the runway, down an embankment and across a road before coming to rest up-right 384 feet beyond the runway's departure end
in low brush.
takeoff must occur no later than 1500' prior to the departure end
of the runway (DER)." The ODP has no such restriction.
Unfortunately, the aircrew assumed ATC had the big picture via radar and would not set up a departure end
On landing roll, he lost his nose wheel steering and elected to take the departure end
cable in case of brake-failure--quick thinking and systems knowledge allowed him to handle an emergency not fully covered in the technical order.
Get familiar with what lies beyond the departure end
of your runway(s) using satellite images from Google maps, develop a plan for an off-field emergency landing and commit it to memory (i.e., a nearby clearing 30 degrees off runway heading).
