How can I calculate the distance on the ground during the climb?
Assuming the climb power is 700ft/min, the climb speed is 65 kts, the wind 260/10kts on runway 26. Start: 700ft Top of climb: 3500ft
How far is the distance flown on the ground (in e.g. ft) and the GS?
What I understood: The difference in altitude is 2800ft and therefore 2800ft / 700ft min = 4 minutes. I can say that I fly 4 minutes long 65 knots: 65kts -> 6582 ft * 4 = 26 328 ft but I don't use the wind in this calculation. Can someone please help me?
