there's nothing about a round number that makes it any easier to hand fly than an odd number. It's still one degree, either way.

Any ideas on the reason why the R/W heading is 259 but then on the SIDs it says follow runway track buts states 260?
|Quoting bond007 (Reply 4):|
Well, this may have little or nothing to do with it, but in some parts of the world when they say fly runway heading (I know this says track), they mean fly the numbered runway heading, not the actual specific degrees. So, if runway is 26, you fly 260 even though actual runway magnetic heading may be different. This is not true in the US of course, where I understand the phrase "fly runway heading" is being phased out (?) in preference to a given heading by ATC. I think the FAA say specifically to not fly the numbers, but the actual heading.

Looks like it is just a Jepp issue, the local AIP has the runway as being 260 degrees
