In most, if not all, aircraft that are Mach capable, there is a button on the autopilot pan that sets aircraft speed to IAS or Mach speed. Currently aircraft in IF fly IAS below FL280 and Mach above FL280, the change is automatic. I suggest an option in the general settings of IF to have it on manual or auto, auto being the default. There is an empty space next to the autopilot speed, and I think that would be a good place for a button that displays the option if manual IAS/MACH is selected.
I’m no good at photoshop or google draw or anything like that so I can’t make an example of what it would look like.
Like this maybe?
I like this idea. Would definitely add to the realism. I’m out of votes, but I might try and clear one.
This is needed. Voted
Good I bumped this,
This would be very useful like I said
Voted, i just did an overspeed on climbout exactly because of this. Would have loved to set .78M as soon as I cleared 10k…
This is a 100% must have. It’ll be a great option for regional flights for example, BOS-YYZ, or flights that are below FL280. It’ll definitely be a game changer for regional operations. Voted.
I totally agree with @SouljaFlight, itd be great for short hops!
Here’s another example. If the briefing says I have to hold this specific Mach .67, I can use the SPD/Mach option and set it to that .67 and carry on with the flight. That option would be right here below the image.
