Aviation Rules of Thumb

Distance Travelled Based on Ground Speed

PREVIOUS Convert Mach Number to Indicated Airspeed (IAS) -- Index -- Time It Takes to Fly a Certain Distance NEXT

Take your groundspeed and divide by 10. That's the distance flown in 6 minutes.

example: Ground Speed = 150 kts => 15 nm in 6 minutes (=2.5 nm/minute)
