Figure 163 and 164, Using an average ground speed of 120 knots and taking off on Rwy 14, what is the minimum rate of climb must be maintained to meet the required climb rate (feet per NM) to 4,800 feet as specified on the instrument departure procedure?

870 feet per minute.

Figure 182, For takeoff on Rwy 9, using an average ground speed of 140 knots , what is the minimum indicated rate of climb mist be maintained to meet the requires climb gradient (feet per NM) to 6,300 feet?

945 feer per minute.

Figure 189, Using an average ground speed of 90 knots, what minimum rate of climb would meet the required minimum climb rate per NM as specified by the instrument departure procedure?

578 feet per minute

Figure 211, For takeoff on Rwy 9, using an average ground speed of 140 knots, what minimum rate of climb would meet the required climb gradient as specified on the instrument departure procedure?

970 feet per minute

A particular instrument departure procedure requires a minimum climb rate of 210 feet per NM to 8,000 feet. If you climb with a ground speed of 140 knots, what is the rate of climb required in feet per minute?

490

Figure 216/216A, If you takeoff from Rwy 34L or Rwy 34R with minimum weather, which of the following is the minimum acceptable rate of climb (feet per minute) to 8,700 feet required for the RENO9.FMG departure at a GS of 150 knots?

1,200 feet per minute.

Figure 29, Using a ground speed of 90 knots on the ILS final approach course, what rate of descent should be used as a reference to maintain the ILS glide slope?

480 feet per minute

Figure 42A, What glidepath and rate of descent should you plan to use initially to establish the glide slope for the ILS Rwy 36L approach? (Use 120 Knots ground speed.)

637 feet per minute.

Figure 188, With a ground speed of 120 knots, approximately what minimum rate of descent will be required between I-GPO 7.3 DME fix (HUDUT) and the I-GPO 4.1 DME fix?

740 fpm

Figure 192, Using an average ground speed of 90 knots, what constant rate of descent from 3,100 feet MSL at the 6 DME fix would enable the aircraft to arrive at 2,400 feet MSL at the FAF?

350 feet per minute.

Figure 210, Using an average ground speed of 90 knots on the final approach segment, what rate of descent should be used initially to establish the glidepath for the ILS RWY 6 approach procedure?

478 feet per minute.

The rate of descent required to stay on the ILS glide slope

must be decreased if the ground speed is decreased.

To remain on the ILS glidepath, the rate of descent must be

increased if the ground speed is increased.

The rate of descent on the glide slope is dependent upon

ground speed.

During a precision radar or ILS approach, the rate of descent required on the glide slope will

increase as the ground speed increases.
