Departing straight out

So you are requesting takeoff, departing straight out.
Well… here’s what the ATC is expecting you to do, and not do.

I see people turning as soon as they depart the runway, when they say straight out. For some reason i always laugh, just flying over runways and terminals.

This is a good point which lots of those on the Training Servers should be aware of - that and what “Remaining in the pattern” means.

There are approx 1 million topics on ‘remaining in the pattern’.
So I thought I pick something different this time :-)

I didn’t realise you had to be clear of the ILS glideslope before turning. Thought it was more to do with being clear of runway reached certain altitude/ traffic situations etc?

It does. Once your are off the localizer you can turn. You can also deviate a little but remain in the ILS field and still depart straight out.

I’ve been selecting departure in relation to where I would be leaving the airspace. Is this unnecessary? Thanks.
