I was flying B777 at FL350 in Training Server with a mach number of 0.84, its cruising speed. When I returned to my device after some time, I noticed that my ground speed is 567 kts due to strong tailwind (~90 kts). Subsequently, I reduced my airspeed to around M0.76, which is not so realistic at that altitude and a near-stall value. I have heard that there is a 550 kts ground speed restriction in Expert Server. Is there still such a restriction? If so, how do you manage such ground speeds due to strong tailwind?
I would take the tailwind. I once did 614 gs in a 747 crossing the Atlantic.
Hello! There is no violation for exceeding a certain ground speed, just a violation for exceeding 260 under 10000
My flight was also transatlantic (from KJFK to LFPG). I have also come across a case where a BA plane broke speed record crossing the Atlantic.
This was dropped almost 5 years ago, so you got nothing to worry about :)
Thanks for the information! :)
There is no restriction on GS only 250 knots below 10000
Lol my highest was 697 knots GS when doing Amsterdam to singapore
Be sure to mention that the 250kt speed limit is in KIAS, not true or ground speed.
