Quoting Firstclasser (Thread starter):
But I don't recall seeing departures from 13L/31R
I am pretty sure that was the takeoff runway Concorde used. IIRC they had to bank to the left for noise abatement.
|Quoting PhilSquares (Reply 9):|
IIRC 31R departures are restricted to turboprop only. I don't have the Jepp in front of me, but if I remember correctly there is a turn right after takeoff to prevent you from getting into LGA airspace. Non-turboprops might have a problem with the turn and cleaning up.
|Quoting Mikephotos (Reply 10):|
I've seen all types including B747's depart from 31R when (rarely) it was in use for departures. They do make a quick turn left after takeoff. I have seen a few turboprops that do the quick right but never a heavy.
