runway heading

runway heading

runway heading
The magnetic direction that corresponds with the runway centerline extended, not the painted runway number. When cleared to “fly or maintain runway heading,” pilots are expected to fly or maintain the heading that corresponds with the extended centerline of the departure runway. Drift correction should not be applied (e.g., Runway 074, actual magnetic heading of the runway centerline 072°, fly 072).

Preliminary ADS-B data depict the airplane flying the 240-degree runway heading while climbing to 2500 feet msl.
You'd climb on runway heading to 3000 feet and, if need be, hold as published at HOPWO.
The pilot applied corrective controls, bringing the aircraft parallel to runway heading just right of centerline.
The tower controller instructed me to fly runway heading. Then I was instructed to climb to 800 feet and at 2 DME, turn left to 240 degrees.
I found a fresh scrape, a good runway heading to a food plot and some tall cattails.
negligently designed and manufactured certain parts of the plane, including its "directional control mechanisms." The complaints contend the defective parts made it hard for the pilots to maintain runway heading while taking off in high crosswinds.
In fact, I already knew that precision instrument approaches have to be aligned with the runway heading and if they can't meet terrain clearance criteria, then they just don't build a precision approach there.
The aircraft climbed through 4,000 feet, maintained runway heading, and flew four miles from the airfield.
In fact, the other runways listed there also have instructions to climb on runway heading to a given altitude prior to turning.
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).
We finally broke out of the clouds at 200 feet, about a quarter mile right of the runway heading approximately 45 degrees off of runway heading.
Prior to launch, the Automatic Terminal Information Service (ATIS) included a wind warning for wind gusts of up to 25 knots at 50 degrees from runway heading. During takeoff both the pilot and weapon systems officer noted a significant crosswind.
