I use Captain Joe’s approach(no pun intended) most of the time. However for a simpler method, (altitude/300) I.e FL330 or 33000ft/300. The altitude here = Above Main Sea level - Elevation of destination airport.

All distances are in nautical miles:)

Before takeoff arm VNAV and LNAV and there should be a white line that tells you the start of your descent. On the 737 one has to press the altitude bug, whilst on the a320 it automatically begins the descent. However, in infinite flight, one has to manually plan it using a formula that can be found here

How has no one else liked this 😂😂😂😂
