I was flying the other day in a Boeing 717, and I must have set my speed for a ~0.87 Mach cruise, when the maximum speed is 0.85 Mach. (I didn’t know that speed limit at the time, only now).
I left my phone while the flight ran, and when I came back, I had been kicked out of the server and received 4 violations. When later checking the replay, I saw that these 4 violations came in the span of 1 minute.
I’d like to know if this is normal and supposed to happen, or if this is a technical error that happened only to me.
Yes, you can get 6 violations before the system ghosts you. You get a violation every 20 seconds from the warning if nothing is done.
The B717’s cruise speed is M .77. Why you were cruising faster than the MMo M .85 is beyond me.
No, this happens to us all
Overspeed violations which cant be overturned.
Sure, I didn’t know that was the Boeing 717’s cruise was .77 Mach.
If you don’t mind, where are you getting that information? Are you just looking it up or do you have a website? Only asking for future reference, so next time I do a flight, I know what to set the cruise speed at.
You can find it right here on the IFC!
You can look it up on either Wikipedia or Boeing’s website, which I believe lists the specifications for each aircraft.
