With the advent of SIDs (Standard Instrument Departure Procedures) comes more flexibility with how Tower handles departures.
3.2.9 — SIDs often involve turns away from the airport shortly after departure; due to this, if “Straight Out Dept.” is being utilized, Controllers should note that this may prevent pilots from flying the selected SID
Before we had SIDs in-app we had to account for the fact that pilots may not have a SID in their flight plan.
The way you can check if a pilot has a SID in their flight plan is either to.
A) Tap on the aircraft and view their flight plan to see if it includes a SID.
B) Tap on the aircraft, tap show information then read their pilot information to see if they have a SID included.
Now we can check if pilots include a SID into their flight plan which would ensure proper separation, removing the need to include “Straight Out Dept.” in ATIS.
