3 violations for one infraction

Why would the system issue me 3 violations for above 250 knots when it was just once and I was slowing speed as ATC was pressing me to descend. I understand why they are there but punishing 3 times for one is not accurate.

If you are over the minimum of 250kts below 10,000ft for a bit it will still give you violations over the span of time you are over 250 kts if it persists for a certain amount at a time.

Welcome into the Community, Adrian!

The basic rules here as follows on the Expert or the Training Server:
250kts or less below 10,000feet.

It is advised to slow down using this change of Flaps and Flight Spoilers before reaching 10,000 feet before it’s too late.

It’s accurate. For every so many (20) seconds over 250 kts you get one violation. After 5 you get ghosted.

In addition to what is said above, you probably got a system violation for the speed, not from ATC. This is done automatically. You can only get ghosted once by ATC.

Other system violations include:

  • Sitting on a runway too long
  • Overspeeding when taxiing >35 ground speed
  • Overspeeding past the limits of an aircraft (even if you are >10,000 ft) like trying to go 350 knots ias in an a320.

You get 20 seconds before a warning, then another 20 seconds before the first violation, and 20 seconds between each one.

That means you were speeding for between 80-99 seconds.
