ODPs are usually depicted in text, not graphic, format and are located in the front of the NACO chart book and on the bottom of the airport information page in Jeppesen’s.

What is a obstacle departure procedure?
“Obstacle departure procedures or ODPs are one way to depart an airport safely in IMC conditions. When an instrument approach is initially established for an airport, the need for departure procedures is assessed. The procedure designer conducts an obstacle analysis.
Where are SIDS published?
A SID clearance is issued to the pilot based on a combination of the destination, the first waypoint in the flight plan, and the takeoff runway used.
Where can I find takeoff minimums?
If you see a “T” within a black, upside down triangle on an FAA approach plate, the airport has non-standard takeoff minimums. You can also find a list of these airports at the beginning of the FAA’s chart packet.
What information does a departure procedure contain?
Expect Departure Clearance Time: The Expect Departure Clearance Time (EDCT) is the expected runway release time assigned to an aircraft included in traffic management programs. Pilots may hear clearance delivery/ground control state: “[Callsign] you have an EDCT time of 1356, acknowledge”
What are the two types of departure procedures?
There are two types of DPs, Obstacle Departure Procedures (ODP), printed either textually or graphically, and Standard Instrument Departures (SID), always printed graphically.
How do you calculate obstacle clearance altitude?
The nonstandard ROC expressed in ft/NM can be calculated using the formula: (0.24 h) = (0.76 d) where “h” is the height of the obstacle above the altitude from which the climb is initiated, and “d” is the distance in NM from the initiation of climb to the obstacle.
Do you have to accept a SID?
The answer was no, you do not have to accept the SID/STAR. However, if you do, you must comply with all the restrictions as well as possess the graffical proceedure.
What obstacle clearance does a published MSA provide?
Minimum Safe Altitude (MSA). Altitudes depicted on approach charts which provide at least 1,000 feet of obstacle clearance within a 25-mile radius of the navigation facility, waypoint, or airport reference point upon which the MSA is predicated.
Where can I find TPP?
The d-TPP is published every 28 days and is available through the Terminal Procedures Search above or the Digital-Terminal Procedures Publication (Complete) (see below).
Where are non standard IFR takeoff minimums found?
If an airport has non standard IFR takeoff minimums, Departure Procedures, and/or Diverse Vector Area information published, you will know by seeing a symbol that looks like an upside down triangle with a ‘T’ in it on the approach plate in the Notes section.
What is the minimum visibility for takeoff?
Standard takeoff minimums are defined as 1 statute mile visibility or RVR 5000 for airplanes having 2 engines or less and ½ statute mile visibility or RVR 2400 for airplanes having more than 2 engines.
What is the difference between an obstacle departure procedure ODP and a standard instrument departure SID )?
Unlike Obstacle Departure Procedures, SIDs usually have portions where the altitude is restricted —either minimum or maximum. Most SIDs have multiple transitions to get you into the en route system. Small airports generally do not have SIDs and most airports that have scheduled air carrier service have at least one SID.
What is a low close in obstacle?
DPs may also contain what are called Low Close in Obstacles. These obstacles are less than 200 feet above the departure end of runway elevation and within one NM of the runway end, and do not require increased takeoff minimums.
