Pretty please use he search function next time. There’s literally loads of these there.


Thanks for the help but I don’t really understand this method

Basically, whatever height you’re at, multiply it by 3 and that gives you the range that you need to begin your descent.

So you’re at 30,000ft,

30X3=90 so you will descend at 90nm.

Stick with a descent of around 2500ft per min until you hit 10000ft, then set a descent of 1500ft until circuit altitude.
