Whilst normally I don’t really care if someone else flying an A380 at 5000ft decides they’re going to hold an airspeed of 400knots for some insane reason, it can get extremely difficult to time approaches and approach sequencing.
As there’s no over speed indication, it’s very common for the impatient people to fly at jet fighter speeds in a super commercial aircraft such as the A380. This makes it difficult to sequence yourself into final at an airport such as LAX when the pilot behind you is mowing you down from behind at an unrealistic, no absolutely ludicrous, speed.
Is it possible to have the airspeed indicator include the overspeed numbers / markers, and violations given if exceeded for a period of time? I think most people just don’t even realise the overspeed numbers, as there’s no indicator.
For anyone reading who is unsure, as a general rule in commercial aircraft, airspeed should be
<250 knots under 10,000ft
<280 knots under 18,000ft
Over 18,000ft depends on aircraft, but you should be cruising around 0.76 - 0.82 Mach. If you’re under 28,000ft (IF still shows knots, not Mach) it would be roughly 305-310 knots
