For whatever reason, there seems to be an inordinate amount of pilots who find 2 minute flights enjoyable, especially when it’s a 2-minute flight at the busiest hub of the day where they get to cut off the 20 other pilots who have patiently endured half an hour of vectors to finally reach their intercept, only to have someone try to sneak right in front of them.
With the exception of FNF, where NOTAMs bar this kind of flight, there is no rule against them. However, there is also no expectation that you just get to be first in line by default.
At EDDF, there isn’t a field right in front of the cone, but there is at a lot of fields, so just imagine the blue dot is a local field, where pilots try to take off and jump straight into the cone on final, completely oblivious to all other traffic around them. (Think KBFI-KSEA when 16s are in use.)
I will stress again, with the exception of FNF, there are currently no rules in place regarding where you may take off, so feel free to takeoff from these fields (for whatever strange reason that compels you to do so), but there are still rules about following Approach instructions.
This means that it is highly likely that:
Approach will force you to climb above the traffic on final or nearing intercept.^
Approach will vector you away from the field until such time as you can be slotted in all the traffic that was there well before you were.
You will be ghosted if your only replies are “unable” or an unwillingness to comply. (Compliance with vectors is standard, it doesn’t change just because you feel like cutting people off. And ”unable” does not mean “I don’t want to.”)
So, one more time, you can certainly take off from next door. But do not just throw yourself into traffic. Maintaining separation and situational awareness is a prerequisite for flights anywhere on Expert, even if it’s next door.
Contact approach as soon as you’re airborne, and stay out of the cone until you’ve received vectors. Not contacting approach until you’ve maneuvered yourself in front of traffic which has been patiently awaiting their turn is not a free pass to first in line. It’s most likely just causing an incursion.
If you want to take off next door and there isn’t a NOTAM in effect, that’s your prerogative. But, under no circumstances are you “unable” to wait your turn, just like everyone else did.
This is not a special situation where you get to ignore vectors. It’s just a short flight (for whatever reason). You’re still responsible for everything you are on any other flight. It’s not a free pass to top priority.
^BTW, this is not a missed Approach. A missed Approach is when you’ve been vectored for an Approach and miss the intercept, or something similar. If the controller has no intention of giving you an intercept vector at that time, it is not a missed Approach. Nor is it okay to just break off because you see the cones. You may occasionally be taken past or over the cones. If you’re at an altitude above other traffic, there’s a reason. There’s no need to request descent to 3000 (you won’t get it…you’d just fly through other planes), Not should you ever just start to descend to 3000 on your own because you see the cone. We bring you over the top of the traffic on purpose, because bringing you across through the traffic would be silly.
