Teterboro Runway 19 Dalton Departure Procedure to be Revised March 7

A revision to the VFR Dalton departure procedure off Runway 19 at New Jersey's Teterboro Airport (TEB) was published on March 7. The DALTON 2 DEPARTURE PROCEDURE will be available only by pilot request. Pilots must ensure they are completely familiar with the restrictions on the procedure due to the close proximity of overhead arrivals to Newark Liberty International (EWR) runway 22. The revised procedure will maintain the 1300 feet altitude restriction and a turn to heading 280 after departure will need to be completed within 2.4 nautical mile DME of the TEB VOR. NBAA strongly urges pilots to completely familiarize themselves with the altitude and heading requirements for the procedure before requesting it.

The procedure can be beneficial when TEB is experiencing departure delays as a result of conflicts with Newark Airport (EWR) arrivals. At Teterboro, IFR departures off Runway 19 are commonly delayed due to separation requirements with arrivals on EWR Runway 22L.

Pilots should still use caution, as there are two towers within 4 NM DME of Teterboro, to the south, 510 feet high, and southwest, 695 feet high.

Pilots must specifically request the VFR Dalton departure procedure as controllers are not able to offer it. FAA advises pilots to familiarize themselves with the strict altitude and heading requirements for the procedure before requesting it. The procedure is available when ceilings are at least 3000 feet and visibility is at least 3 miles.
