The good news is the groundspeed
you'll enjoy coming down.
When enabled, the Fuel Range Ring shows an estimate of the remaining flight distance at the current fuel consumption rate and groundspeed
You'll have to adjust as you go because your groundspeed
will change through the turn.
Experiencing a headwind on departure will result in a lower groundspeed
for the climb, and therefore a greater climb gradient (in altitude gained per nautical mile).
The horizontal leg is the distance you'll travel at a specific groundspeed
Basic round-gauge instruments, including HSI, groundspeed
and GPS altitude are highly configurable.
As I begin my last inbound leg, I am indicating 240 knots groundspeed
, which equates to four miles a minute.
According to the NTSB and based on data from the 496, the airplane reached a maximum groundspeed
of about 50 knots, which dropped to 44 knots before impact.
Sometimes you just have too much altitude, groundspeed
, or both.
Basic navigation data including GPS groundspeed
, time, distance and bearing to the next waypoint is displayed at the bottom of the map page.
During my copilot's autorotations, I was uncomfortable because of the late, nose-high attitude he used to arrest groundspeed
on each one.
Wind will change your groundspeed
and distance traveled during that descent, so the question is at what groundspeed
will the aircraft track the glideslope in a 731.
