Attention All Pilots: Slow Down On Advanced Server

To make things easier for ATC in controlled airspaces, please observe the following speed restrictions on the advanced server:

- Any airliner or fighter flying below FL400 is not to exceed 550 kts GS (Ground Speed)
- Fighters can fly at any speed above FL400.

This is for the advanced server only. Thank you!

Thanks for this. It’s horrible when I see pilots flying at the speed of light when they’re doing a short flight.

That is going to vary depending on the winds aloft. However, I usually fly around 320 KIAS and that is usually 480-520 kts GS.

Currently you don’t get a vio for flying above 250 kts IAS below FL100 in a fighter when outside of a fields airspace.

Going to be any changes to this? Might aswell just bring the vio back :p

thanks mark terrible when you see people going that fast

Just to be clear, this will be grounds for ghosting not a violation?

Also, can you ask that ATC warn first with a check help pages and/or request speed <= 300kts or something? Not for my benefit of course but those who don’t check these forums. I flew ADV for probably 6 mos before frequenting here and would have had no idea of this rule.
