Interesting, looks like trying to squeeze out departures in between landings not working so well. . Yeah, all landings are on 19L and they are trying to get the heavies out on 19L, as well. At some point, it stops working when the numbers are too much for 19L. Throw in the fact they can only depart...Jump to post

Due to the pineapple express hitting the Bay Area, the 19's are the only runways in use right now.

All turbine departures off 15 at BUR turn right to 210 at the standard 400' AAL/end of the runway. The lone exception might be if they give them the ELMOO9 going southeast, which we use in light airplanes headed in that direction to pick up V186. It isn't a quick turn, just a regular one. It just h...Jump to post
BUR has a very quick climbing turn right after departure off of RWY 15:

To me, it always seems that the turn starts very quickly after the wheels are off the ground, possibly (way) less than 400' AAL.

You can see from the 1963 aerial of LAX RWY 16/34 still existed:

At LAX, when departing 24L, while taxiway E6 is the last taxiway onto the runway, ATC can assign departure from intersections E7 or E8.

Not really as it takes almost as much spacing to depart from 1L/R to get the departure through the intersections of 28L/R before the 28 landers cross the threshold.

Your last comment, "I guess keeping them out of the terminal and the associated congestion must be a big factor." That is correct.

Very simple, if they’re using the 28s and the 01s, the taxi route from the FBO on the opposite from the the terminal is far shorter, doesn’t involve crossing 28s or the long loop around the end of the 28s AND getting mixed up in the terminal. Short taxi, no crossings, no pushbacks, what’s not to lo...Jump to post

From https://www.geaviation.com/sites/defaul ... CF34-3.pdf:
The CF34-3B1 is flat rated to 73F, where the CF34-3B is sea level flat rated to 86F. So, I guess the CF34-3B would be the "hot and high" engines on the CRJ-200BER/LR.
An optional high temperature flat rating for the CRJ200 engine allows the Bombardier CRJ200 performance to improve in hot and high conditions.
I guess this flat rated engine would be for the "B" designated CRJ-200's.
