Descent Calculator Question

Hi everyone. Not sure if anyone has used the X-Plane Tools Descent Calculator (https://x-planetools.com/descent.html), but for anyone who has, could you please help me understand: are the speed boxes in airspeed or ground speed?

Thanks!

I use it, and I put in Airspeed

Airspeed, ok. Thank you!

So I’ve learned based on experience if it says something like 1035 / 840 I descent 400 more fpm do 1400.

You don’t have to do this, but that’s what I do. I keep slowing down as I get lower.

Awesome. I’ll try that on my next flight. Thanks.
