What is Glide Ratio?

Last Updated: Jan 23, 2013 02:22PM PST
Glide Ratio tells you the ratio between how much distance you are travelling forward to how much you are falling downward.

Simply put, the higher the number the more you are flying rather than falling.

When you are flying, there are three different colours that identify the Glide Ratio (GR) range that you are in:
  • Red: GR 0-3
  • Yellow: GR 3-5
  • Green: GR 5+
