How to Descend

Is there a proper way of calculating how far away to descend and at what rate, because everyone does it different and I was wondering if there is a proper way

I use this tool! Works always for me!


That will help but I want to know if there is a proper way to calculate how far away you need to descend as well because as I said

There’s no “proper” way… just descent 20 minutes before arrival

Hello! You can use by making a new route through the SimBrief option. After entering all your flight information, it will ask you to login into SimBrief which is free then will redirect you back to After that, you will see all your flight information including what altitude and vertical speed you should be at each waypoint. It’s pretty cool! Let me know if you have any questions about it. :)


I have seen that but it normally tells you to descend at around 100NM out, normally everyone goes way earlier than that

Ok, thanks for you help mate
