  • Ask/announce takeoff departing straight out.
  • A straight out departure typically means you stay within the limits of ±15 degrees heading from the centre line of the runway. So if you depart from runway 27, runway heading will be 270. After takeoff any heading between 255(270-15) and 285(270+15) is a straight out departure.
  • If you receive ATC instructions to change heading please do so, follow all instructions.

Great tutorial @Trio! Another that the community needs to focus on!

When in a busy airspace, make sure to check atis for if a straight out departure is required, a place like FNF is MOST likely going to have it required. Don’t get reported for not reviewing ATIS and a straight out departure!
