Descent.

Recommended Posts

I have just completed a flight from KILG- KPVD using RC. The flight was ok until on approaching the area of KPVD when without warning I was instructed to descend from 280 to 100 and to be level in 30 miles or less. I descended at 3000 ft per minute, having great difficulty in getting my speed off from mach 8.1 to 250 knts. As you can imagine I didnt quite make it and received the inevitable b......... when receiving the flight critique. Is this a normal instruction or was there something in the flight plan that might be the problem. Also can someone please give me the formula for calculating the descent rate.
