For the first time, I went to 32,000 feet and when i went there the speed changed to machs. What does this mean and what should i set it at 32,000 feet.
Mach 1 is the speed of sound.
At 32,000ft you should have it around .76 - .82 Depending on how fast you want to fly :)
Oh ok that makes sense. Also why is the overspeed at 300 at this altitude rather than the usual 340 knots.
It depends on which aircraft you’re in.
Im in the 787-9
300 knots IAS is much greater at that altitude than FL200
Then it’s supposed to be 350
Oh ok thanks for the help blue panda and boodz
Happy to help :)
IRL your computers will tell you the most efficient speed for current conditions.
I usually like to settle in to whatever only gives me 1* of nose up attitude. The higher you go the faster you must be to maintain that particularly if flying heavy.
