Hello everybody,
Under PANS-OPS rules straight flight is assumed during a turning departure until reaching 394ft height.
What is the procedure under TERPS rules?

One part of the paragraph says this:
"b. What criteria is used to provide obstruction clearance during departure?
1. Unless specified otherwise, required obstacle clearance for all departures, including diverse, is based on the pilot crossing the departure end of the runway at least 35 feet above the departure end of runway elevation, climbing to 400 feet above the departure end of runway elevation before making the initial turn, and maintaining a minimum climb gradient of 200 feet per nautical mile (FPNM), unless required to level off by a crossing restriction, until the minimum IFR altitude."
