A flight simulator study was made of an IFR departure procedure from Runway 08 at Albuquerque, N. M. Sunport IRPORT5 Hot day temperature and calm surface winds were used for initial tests. Then normal values were used to simulate actual ABQ conditions for easterly wind flows. 64 departures were made by 5 qualified pilots in the Boeing 720 flight simulator. A statistical analysis was made of recorded flight tracks to determine the average maximum distances and to calculate the 95 and 99 percent confidence limits of these averages. Left and right turns were flown, with specified turning heights of 400 and 700 feet above ground level. Author
