Re: Spec Vis Departure

There is no published departure for the runway in question so ATC assigns the Spec Vis departure. Is this hypothetical, or have you actually had such a clearance? Every time. Like I said, there are no SIDs for 4 of the 6 runways at my airport. If it's in your clearance, you have to follow it. You a...
