478 feet per minute.

12
Q

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

A

must be decreased if the ground speed is decreased.

13
Q

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

A

increased if the ground speed is increased.

14
Q

The rate of descent on the glide slope is dependent upon

A

ground speed.

15
Q

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

A

increase as the ground speed increases.
