    Awesome, thanks! I did get the answers I needed from Jordan_747. Do you actually pilot, or flight sim, or...?

    No big secret -- I'm doing some consulting work, and I needed to fully understand the standard 3 degree glide slope used when landing so that I could compute how low a plane is likely to be during landing approach as it goes over certain areas near airports. That also relates to me helping a friend with "plane spotting" (the www.planespotting.com airport index has some good locations).

    Why did you need a 737 guy for that? Any decent CFI should be able to explain that.

    Well im a student pilot, and they should be around a 3-4* glide slope. i would think that they would flare in the last 1000-2000 feet from ther runway aprox 300ft off the ground. they uisally try for the 1000 ft touch down make wihch is the big rectangular boxes on the runway. i think that should help....

    If you're using US approach plates, I believe the glideslope data is there, and it's different for different approaches. I fly small singles.
