flight plan, descent speed

Post by marcopol » Wed Sep 11, 2019 5:05 pm

Hello
I hope that my translation will be understandable.

in the flight plan, if I put a descent speed of 1100 "/ min, it should warn me to go down BEFORE in time
that if I had put 1300 "mn, no?
is it correct ?

Hi marocpol.
Higher is your descent ratio, later you'll get the T/D.
This is generally true on IFR flights, where the T/D is calculated by an algorithms. On VFR flights the plugin is more prone to consider just your distance to the airport, so the descent speed doesn't really change the T/D calculation.

ha good, it seems pretty illogical because if I put 1500 feet / min instead of 1000 feet / min, it means that I will go down faster on my slope, so the triggering of the order of descent should be later , no ?
weird.
thank you
