In this exerpt from Advanced IFR, by Pilot Workshops, follow along on this IFR flight from Eagle, CO (KEGE) to Aspen, CO (KASE). While relatively short, the flight will traverse challenging moutainous terrain. Because of the terrain, the departure from Eagle will utilize a Standard Instrument Departure (SID). SIDs are air traffic control procedures created to provide obstruction clearance and a transition from the terminal area to the en route structure. This helps reduce both pilot and controller workload and enhance safety. Multiple SIDs may be published for a particular airport and have specific equipment and performance requirements to consider.
