 Not sure I understand. Is it to determine the TOD, that is where to begin the descent to the airport?
 Never let the facts get in the way of a good theory.

 Nothing to do with take offs and landings, only pure descent from one level to another, given the info above.

 Out of the altitude difference and the climb / sink rate you can easily calculate the time required to climb / descent to the required FL. Then multiply this time with the TAS and you get the distance flown ( this works only at 0 windspeed, once you´ve got a wind involved you´ve got to do a little vector subtraction / addition) Jan
