I have used the GPS on non instrument runways too.
I agree, the VSR feature is a pretty cool option that comes with the
I actually printed out on an Excel Spreadsheet, the conversions from
feet per seconds to feet per minutes from the VSR window on the GPS. So
you can use the Vertical Speed Gauge on the *** pit dashboard. It works
pretty good if you can maintain an even speed. I found on some runways
though, the GPS VSR will place you half way down the runway. So I round
off to the next higher vertical fpm speed. IE: if the slope calls for
-925, I round off to -1000 fpm on the gauge.
I'm practicing with the VHF meters too. Some really small airports
don't even have GPS approaches, let alone ILS.
