Hello all! Today I was playing with Global like all of you, and my dad helped me out (he is a pilot for FedEx) with when to descend and he gave me this basic equation
How to know how far out to descend: multiply your altitude by 3, then divide that by 1000
ex: you’re flying at 35,000 feet and the final approach is 5,000 feet.
35,000-5,000= 30,000 feet to lose.
30,000 x 3= 90,000
Knock off 3 zeroes. (90,000 becomes 90)
So you start descending at 90 miles.
- this assumes a 3 degree descent (300 ft/nvm)
I hope this helps all of you, as I noticed a lot of people with like a 3,000 vs on expert which is not something normal. 😝
