Apologies to EGCC_N_TWR 15Sep2020

Hello Tower,

Thanks for the service just now, and sorry I messed up the departure in the King Air - heading back around to the departure runway threshold! This was the first time I executed a departure from part-way along a runway, and I didn't tell the GPS I wasn't starting from the end. I disconnected when I spotted the turn, but didn't figure out what I'd done wrong for a few minutes afterwards. It would have been perfect if I knew what I was doing! Lesson learned.

Sorry again,

David

Hiya David!

To prevent this from happening, you can select a direct to the first waypoint after departure and then enable the AP. The XP11 G530/430 has that nasty tendency of taking you back to the start of the runway 😛

Kind regards,

Hello Darren,

Thanks.

I disconnected before spending a few minutes figuring out what had happened. It turns out it’s harder to fly when one hand is slapped on your forehead.

Cheers,

David
