    120 knots divided by 60 is 2. The required climb gradient for runway 27 is 265' per NM. So, 265 multiplied by 2 is 530 FPM.

    A VCOA is used as an alternative to a normal ODP. In the event your aircraft is unable to meet the required climb gradient specified by the ODP, you can choose to fly the VCOA. This procedure allows the pilots to climb over the airport to the 'climb to' altitude in visual conditions before continuing on with the instrument portion of the procedure.
