Paris/Charles de Gaulle ILS question.

Yesterday I was landing at LFPG, with the ALT set to 2700ft.
Before reaching that altitude, I had already intercepted the ILS at 3000ft, and not from below, like it is accepted.
At 2700ft, I had to increase my rate of descent to get back into the glideslope.
Is the slope for LFPG in need for a correction as EGLC? Because the Paris region is mainly flat.

Yes, CDG. All of my approaches were done for 2700ft, so as to intercept from below.
Not sure why on CDG was like that.

I was following just a fixed altitude for every ILS interception. Turns out I should have started using the approach charts for the runways.
There was even a tutorial for following the approach charts.

@Carson, please close and unlist this post.

Why do you want me to?

Because I didn´t make research to find out about the ILS altitude for Charles de Gaulle, and I assumed it was the same for every airport.
Aernout even made a tutorial for the approach charts.

The final decision is up to you though.

No need to. This topic is fine :)
