I know it can be annoying and really frustrating, I have ran into the same issue. Honestly though I feel that it is a pretty fair rule. And sometimes if I am weary of what’s going to happen, I’ll switch to casual server. But I’m definately planning my descents and approaches better since my first few violations. Sometimes it has to hurt you to make you better.
Which one plagued you for years 👀😬
@Joe… Beside you (power that be) the Overspeed Procedure. (As for the composition Segway Style in written communications I have no excuse, just and old military writer that expect the reader to extrapolate)

@David_Driggers. MaxSez: Hurt LOL! Just gives me the opportunity to rebuild landing count. What the hay, it’s just a game. Regards Dave.
This is worth discussing. It would be nice if one mistake equaled one violation. But I’m not sure how they could write the code to separate the different situations. I wish I could set different audio volumes to more than just SFX and ATC maybe separate out the engine sound so I could turn the volume down on that and have it set high for the warning horns.
Just leaving this here… Shameless plug…
Keep control of your plane, spoilers and gradual descent.
Know you must be below 250 knots below 10,000 feet.
Monitor your descent all the way through
In my opinion the back to grade one is fair. It happened to me around two months ago and now I am much more careful about monitoring my descent.
If you can not get your plane to slow down then exit your flight.
By exit the flight you mean give 3 short rings on the alarm bell and bail out right? Lol
explain yourself better … thanks
@David_Driggers… who lov’s ya baby! I can see the scramble for an explanation now. Ya gotta put up with the “Great Unwashed” such is an Aviators life. LOL
If you choose to sleep fly or not continuously monitor your flight on any other server but casual… you deserve what you get…case closed !!!
1 Minute is to less to extract the Spoilers? What are you flying? A concrete block? It takes less than 3 seconds to raise the spoilers :D
Lol, no max, I ain’t dead. I thought it was funny. Just curious as to which issue you had struggled with for years haha.
Luker Warm regards
@Joe… Had to read the responce twice to get it. Well done ya got me.
Guilty as charged in my youth, but I found a cure.
Suggest the Kuma Sutra If you ever have a similar problem at your age

@Maxmustang. Last of a dying breed brother! Lol.
I mean if you get a warning at 270 knots then bail out but if it’s 255 knots you can get it down in time.
This is quite a lot of words spent on “why didn’t you just level off?” Or “why don’t you slow down before 10001 feet?” Or “were you sucked forward in time through a wormhole which stole that time from you and that’s why you weren’t given enough time from cruise to 10000 to bleed off speed?”
Many people are missing the point of this thread. I think we all understand what we did wrong. I didn’t need someone to tell me to “level off.” I made a mistake and expected to get a violation for it. Instead, I got 6.
The question is why is it necessary to be hit with multiple violations for a single event? In the case of the OP, 4 violations in 1 minute seems like too many. In my case, 6 violations in 2 minutes also seems crazy. No one has even been able to answer how often speeding violations are issued, and to me it seems inconsistent and excessive.
Although I agree that it is too much, one for one event sounds a bit crazy too. If that were the case, every time a Grade 3 flew on IF, they could conceivably overspeed for the entire flight, as long as they flew less that the max number of violations.
Good point. Can’t argue with that at all. Maybe there is a happy medium like 1 per 5 minutes or something in that range.
