If the weather is VFR, why would you bother with the Spec Vis departure? Fly the published departure
There is no published departure for the runway in question so ATC assigns the Spec Vis departure.
Isn't SPEC VIS a "published departure"?

Re: Spec Vis Departure

Actually just today I was given a runway heading restriction off YXS Runway 24 by tower to accommodate other traffic.. so Id say that SPEC VIS is more for a procedure to help you maintain obstacle clearance should you need it. Generally I would agree that when ATC instructs you to do something, the...

Re: How to get rid of ACPA?

I'm all for going to ALPA Group A status if we can still get it. But we need to get new elected people, get out of those offices, and put out all the existing staff who have been so ineffective on every file from lobbying our causes (duty regs), to fighting for our rights (FOS), to maintaining our ...

Re: Which Aircraft For PPL and CPL Training?

To the OP, listen and consider advice from owners. Especially owners who have done what you are considering. And AME's involved with general aviation. Ignore the rest. You want to make an informed decision based on solid advice. Sole ownership will cost you thousands and thousands. Maybe tens of th...

Well that does not make my comment less true.

This is a cannibalistic industry. Anybody who tells you to wait before training doesn't want you to compete with them when things pick up.
