YPAD South SID

hello IFC, I have noticed at YPAD there is no Standard Instrument Departure to the south. Should I use an east/west one and turn south after completing?

There’s not much south of Adelaide other than Antarctica, where are you headed?

Kingscote.

Ah that makes sense. I’d follow the PANKI THREE DEPARTURE but only go as far as SULLY before continuing on the rest of your route.

Alright thanks!

Would a BENDO TWO DEPARTURE work?

BENDO takes you east.

Why not just use the generic VOR departure?

(Or GILES seems to set you up to track directly toward 19 if you are dead set on a fully-spelled-out SID.)

Yeah, I mean, I like the ones that are more specific too, but sometimes they just don’t have one. KORD, I think, is just essentially “expect vectors to [transition waypoint]” which isn’t very helpful for planning.

Actual YPAD-YKSC flights just use AD EEMUE VAVPA. Not everything has to be a standard procedure. Even departures out of busy airspaces don’t always stick to SIDs. Don’t be afraid to try different things!

Yea, i guess thats true. I usually use SIDs when available though.
I use PANKI 3 for YPAD to Sydney
BENDO 2 for Melbourne
GILES 4 for Perth
etc. Thanks for your help.

So for going to YKSC, it’s just the Adelaide 3 departure. Maintain runway heading until a certain altitude or distance from AD, whichever is later, then RV or proceed on course.
