@Mark_Denton can you add in theNOTAM that that is only enforced on the advanced

The speed requirement is the same for both the Advanced and Playground Servers. Ghosting can only be done on the Advanced server as I’m sure that most already know this.

So If I flew on PG at 600knots what will happen?

Zaid,
You should know the rules on both the Playground and Advanced servers. ATC on the Playground can and should be issuing speed commands if they see you or anyone flying above 550 kts GS. I would hope that you would be an example even when you are flying on the Playground server as you are fully aware of the speed restrictions.

Well I know but recognized th a this won’t be applied to PG until you add the restriction to the system

The speed restriction is still applicable for the Playground Server. Thanks.

do you have to be on their frequency to be ghosted, this is for any reason not the speed restriction in particular as I’m intrigued to know. thanks

Now this is somthin for me :D

If you are ghosted by ATC, you should be on their frequency where they would issue you a speed reduction warning first. However, mods can ghost when they are flying.

Does SoFlo stand for South Florida region?

Yes that is what it stands for.

I mean for example if I was not on their frequency and going 700kts could they ghost me?, don’t worry I never break the curent speed restriction anyway

So why even ask? If it is necessary, pilots will be ghosted. ATC should be giving warnings but a pilot can be ghosted without a warning.
