To get a fairly good estimate of how high you should be for your lateral distance from the landing threshold take the nautical miles displacement and multiply by 3. This will give you your required height in hundreds of feet assuming a 3° glideslope.
ie., 12 miles to run = 36 x100 = 3,600 feet AAL.
