This SID requires a 180 turn to the right at 2.3 DME IWW to intercept the 082 radial to DET by DET 30.
On Boeing aircraft e.g 757/767 I have noticed that pilots take this turn in
Heading Select rather than LNAV - any reason why.
Does one not trust LNAV until its integrity is checked once airbourne for say a few minutes? In contrast to 777 and 744 - where FD is engaged in LNAV and VNAV while on ground. So is the 757/767 different, less accurate in terms of inertial reference perhaps?
If in HDG select would one select the heading to the right gradually to establish the course on the 082 inbound, (to adjust for wind) or just wind in 082.
Just a matter thats bugged me for a while.
