MaxSez:” Intersection Section Departures (ISD) SHOULD Always be allowed unless they block the only Taxiway Intersection access to a full length runway” (IFATC MANUAL 7.1.6).
Clearly an “ISD”, this flow control procedure, is neglected or disallowed routinely on a continuing basis on all Servers by Pilots and Controllers alike.
I am and have been an advocate for “ISD” for IF aircraft who’s performance characteristics meet or exceed a short field or non-full length takeoff profile. Particularly at aerodromes with runway lengths that exceed an aircraft’s performance characteristics as noted in there airworthiness certification found on line. (“Heavy” Trash Haulers need not apply for sure.)
Accordingly, I suggest IFATC “Always” allow “ISD” at Pilots Discretion”, WX Conditions/Type permitting as an expeditor and flow control excelerator… Pilots of Short Field/non- Full Length TakeOffs capable A/C should choose as a 1st opinion an “Intersection Departure” rather than a long Taxi/Q wait as an expediter, Fuel/Time saver.
( Note: Refer to AIM 4.3.10 for specific ISD guidance)
What say you Community? (PLEASE DISREGARD YES, my Error)
- ISD always:
