While engaging in this nerdy pastime, I noticed that there were quite a few approaches where things would start out fine and then approximately halfway down the approach, power would increase and the descent rate
would flatten out.
Pilots should plan their descent within the TAA to permit a normal descent rate
from the IF/IAF to the FAF.
Data collected from these tests will be used to verify the parachute inflation characteristics and landing system performance, as well as the altitude and descent rate
of the Starliner at touchdown.
As with any air vehicle, and a parachute must be considered as such, gross weight is a key determinant of the descent rate
, which itself is a compromise between a highly desirable soft landing and the tendency of the parachute to drift: A simple rule-of-thumb is that the lower the descent rate
, the greater the parachutes' drift from its intended landing spot.
The jet attempted a go-around maneuver and subsequently encountered a headwind, climbing to a height of only 85 feet before sinking back onto the runway at a descent rate
of 900 feet a minute.
says its target performance for the product is an increase in descent rate
of between 50 and 100 percent of what it would be without them.
ascent rate of 50 km/h for all kind of vehicles, 30 km/h descent rate
for service vehicles and 50 km/h descent rate
for buses and light vehicles.
Our aircraft got momentarily lower than desired at times while on final approach due to the illusion, despite the altitude and descent rate
Beal also set the descent rate
for that runway too high _ 1,500 feet (457 meters) of altitude per minute rather than the recommended 1,000 feet (305 meters).
For instance, during the rover separation, they had to prevent the flight hardware from clashing or coming into contact with each other during the “two body phase” of the Descent Rate
Limiter (DLR)/bridle deployment.
The result is that the cabin altitude changes more smoothly and at a different pace than the aircraft's climb or descent rate
Significant winds flowing down the valley also increased our descent rate
