I'm confused as to what runways this airport uses.
|Quoting P3Orion (Reply 4):|
the TRACON is supposed to give us 15 MIT (miles-in-trail) to RWY28 to accomodate departures.
|Quoting Acey (Reply 6):|
Wow, P3Orion, that was a very informative post. Thanks much!
|Quoting Vikkyvik (Reply 5):|
assume MIT would mean the distance between arrivals. Is that correct? If so, how many departures can you typically fit in with 15 MIT?
|Quoting Acey (Reply 10):|
Is 27R/9L only going to be a IFR runway or is it used in good weather as well? Do heavies land on it or are they instead assigned to 28 or 27L?
|Quoting AAH732UAL (Reply 13):|
It was cool as it was the first time I had heard ORD tower say stay with me on every departure I heard and also give two headings before hand off. It may not be pretty but its very effective.
|Quoting Acey (Reply 15):|
Would RNAV departures work here, like DFW or ATL?
|Quoting IAHFLYR (Reply 17):|
NO. When you have an airport with different runways that either cross or have crossing extended centerlines, unlike DFW, ATL, LAX, and a few others who are basically all parallel the vector toward the departure gates work much more efficiently.
|Quoting Tiger119 (Reply 19):|
- Are the long term plans for ORD to have six paralleling runways? All 272.8/092.8 degrees? If so, what time frame is Chicago shooting for? I have wondered for quite a while, thanks,
|Quoting Manta (Reply 21):|
Just a quick question - is rwy 22L ever used for arrivals anymore or with the addition of 27R, have 22L arrivals pretty much ended?
