Aviation Rules of Thumb

Climb Rate for Obstable Clearance

PREVIOUS Convert Climb Gradient to Climb Rate (RoC) -- Index -- Three Degree Glideslope NEXT

Take feet per minute (fpm) the charts say your aircraft can climb at that given alt. and temp.
Multiply that by 60 and divide by your Vy or Vyse airspeed.

example: 1200 x 60 / 90 = 800 fpm rate of climb
tip: it's often faster to first do the last part; here: 60/90 = 2/3, then multiply 1200 by this fraction.
