There, we find takeoff minimums for Runway 5 are a 400-foot ceiling and visibility of 2 1/2 sm if you climb using the standard climb gradient of 200 feet per nm.
Constraint Value Design mission range (km) 12000 Takeoff field length (m) [less than or equal to] 2700 Landing field length (m) [less than or equal to] 1750 Engine-out climb gradient [greater than or equal to] 0.024 Rate of climb at TOC (m/s) [greater than or equal to] 1.5 Fuel volume [greater than or equal to] required block fuel volume Table 5: Results of single objective optimization cases.
According to the new guidance, "IFR departure procedures or a DVA may include a higher-than-standard climb gradient originating at the departure end of the runway." Similarly, "a higher-than-standard missed approach climb gradient may be published from the missed approach point." The reason for this, according to the FAA, is that an exception exists in obstacle-avoidance criteria when there are "low, close-in obstacles" near the departure end of the runway.
Pilots should know that ATC may request a climb gradient greater than the standard 200 FPNM in a DVA.
A VCOA is designed when obstacles more than 3 SM from an airport require a climb gradient greater than 200 feet per NM (FPNM).
the turn at 1900 on the ODP to keep a standard climb gradient and clear the tower.--LS
The NOAA charts and Jeppesen guides also give us a table that permits comparing climb gradient to ground speed and deriving the rate of climb needed.
A higher climb gradient requirement is published in the plate's notes section.
So unless a [V.sub.x] climbout is necessary to clear obstacles or to net a required climb gradient, there's a much greater margin of safety when climbing at [V.sub.y] or, especially in piston twins, even faster.
Twins weighing more than 6000 lbs and/or having [] above 61 KCAS must demonstrate, in still air at 5000 ft, with the inoperative engine feathered, a climb gradient of 1.5 percent (if certified after February 1991), or a rate of climb of 0.027 []--not exactly earth-shaking performance.
(How many approaches do you know where they put a localizer on the side of a mountain solely to provide the level of precision guidance necessary to survive the missed approach?) Then there are some approaches I remember in Alaska where the missed approach climb gradient prompted some TERPSter with a wry sense of humor to add a note something like, "Caution.
