CHAPTER SEVEN
Example: What should the rate of descent be to stay on a 3° glideslope for a PAR to runway
36? The rate of descent will depend on groundspeed. With an approach speed of 115 KIAS and
wind from the north at 10 KTS:
Groundspeed + 115 KIAS ­ 10 Knot Headwind = 105 Knots
105 knots is not listed in the descent table so interpolate between 90 and 120 knots for a
3.0° angle of descent.
