Airplane Descent Calculator Pro $3,99
Suppose you are at 10.000 feet and need to descend to 2.000 feet. Where do you begin your descent?
Airplane Descent Calculator Lite allows you to calculate the distance in which the plane should begin the descent to get target altitude, for a specific descent rate (vertical speed) and ground speed (horizontal speed).
Many times during an aircraft flight, true ground speed differs from precomputed ground speed, so, during the flight is necessary to calculate how far we need to begin the descent. To avoid needing to go down at 3.000 feet/minute in a Cessna 150, to descend from the current altitude to runway altitude.
This App is Free, has No Ads, and not special permissions needed.
