I was planning out a flight on my computer that departs MCO. When looking at the "Citrus Four Departure", the departure description was:
"All aircraft maintain heading as assigned for vectors to appropriate fix. Maintain 1500 feet. Expect further clearance to filed altitude/flight level 10 minutes after departure."
My question is about the 1500 line. Why is that so low? Most other DPs I've looked at are all 3000' initally or higher. But 1500 feet? All other MCO DPs were 5000'. The name at the top of this chart is followed by "(Obstacle)". Can someone explain what an "obstacle" departure is, because it seems like if there's an obstacle, you'd want to climb rather than level off right away.
