  4. 4) You're flying an obstacle departure procedure that requires a minimum climb gradient of 400 FPNM. If your ground speed in the climb is 150 knots, what climb rate do you need to maintain?

    If you're flying 150 knots ground speed, you're covering 2.5 miles per minute (150/60 = 2.5). So if you multiply 400 FPNM x 2.5, you get a climb rate of 1000 FPM.
