Hi All, I'm a new private pilot and had a question regarding exiting a runway with a taxiway that requires a >90 degree turn. I frequent an airport that has a runway exit with approximately a 120 degree turn. I ask ATC for approval and I usually receive an agitated response. I'll gladly keep asking even if they get ****ed off if it is unclear because it's far better than getting violated. Some time ago, my flight instructor was asked to give ATC a phone call as a Southwest pilot when he did something along these lines. His circumstance involved a high-speed taxiway but he wasn't certain if this 90 degree rule applied to all taxiways or just hi-speed. Does anyone have insight to whether ATC approval is required to exit runway that requires a >90 degree turn? 4-3-20. Exiting the Runway After Landing The following procedures must be followed after landing and reaching taxi speed. a. Exit the runway without delay at the first available taxiway or on a taxiway as instructed by ATC. Pilots shall not exit the landing runway onto another runway unless authorized by ATC. At airports with an operating control tower, pilots should not stop or reverse course on the runway without first obtaining ATC approval. Obviously, this isn't the "crime of the century". I just want to know what is technically correct.
