Hi guys,

I tried to do a flight from KMKC to KSTL in a Learjet 45, using Simple ATC+. On approach, I'm told to descend and maintain 2,200 until locked on the localizer, but this is too high for me to capture the glideslope. I am trying to land at runway 30L. Does anyone have any pointers for calculating a good capture altitude (say, a certain altitude AGL)?
