The FAA has gone GPS crazy

The new departure procedure for Elmira airport, ELMIRA ONE, specifies the headings you’re supposed to fly to the hundredth of a degree.

I’m lucky if I can hold a heading within 5 degrees. Especially if there’s turbulence, and if there’s any wind at all at Elmira there’s going to be mechanical turbulence from the hills that surround the airport.
