Noted for glide ring settings:

63 kts best distance, 59 kts, best amount of time left.

600 fpm descent rate.

I've seen one other estimate it at 560 fpm, don't know if that's from the book or actual experienced data.From page 4-42 of this https://dynonavionics.com/public_htm...LL_SKYVIEW.pdf



Glide Ring Setup

SkyView Classic (as of Software v14.0), and SkyView HDX, can display a Glide Ring .

For instructions on how to use the Glide Ring feature, see the SkyView Classic Pilot’s User Guide,
Rev W. and later, or the SkyView HDX Pilot’s User Guide.
There are two settings that need to be adjusted for your specific aircraft for Glide Ring to be
accurately displayed:
• SETUP MENU > AIRCRAFT INFORMATION > SINK RATE DURING GLIDE
• SETUP MENU > PFD SETUP > AIRSPEED LIMITATIONS > Vg – BEST GLIDE
(under PERFORMANCE)


Probably somewhere between 560 and 600 fpm

63kt for best glide.

Usage 7-84 through 7-86 https://dynonavionics.com/public_htm...ev_X_v15_0.pdf
