Calculate pitch rate from altitude

  1. Apr 8, 2012 #1

    Is anyone able to explain to me how i take a required altitude and calculate the required pitch rate from it ?

    Or a very simple tutorial on the process ?

    Thanks in advance

    Your pitch and groundspeed will give you your time to altitude. What do you mean by "pitch rate"? The rate of change of pitch? That would also affect your time to altitude.
