You’re way ahead as I had to wait for a 737 to land before I took off. Descend at 180nm out.

That’s quite far out. How about 99 NM out? I think that might make more sense considering I’m 220 NM out and just passing through FL260.

Ok. Up to you, that’s what my descent calculator said but your choice.

I could if we had a higher ascent rate. I’m bumping it up to 2700 FPM instead and I’ll descend 180 NM out also. :)

Ok good plan, I agree, the ascent rate was a bit low.

I’m going to start slowing down a little bit as I am approaching FL300.

So I passed FL250. Going to bring it down to 10,000 feet now and after that I assume the altitude will be at either our discretion or ATC’s.

I’m descending to 4000, there’s no Approach so our descent is at our discretion as long as we’re at 3000-3500 when turning final.

And now there’s approach. Contact them at around 50NM out.

Just got the ATIS, landing is runway 30. Remember to alter your flight plan, or just leave it as is and APP will vector you.

Roger that. I’ll have them vector me.

Great flight! I enjoyed it!

I was right behind you guys! SAS151
