I know violation disputes seem to fall on deaf ears around here, but I figured what the heck.
A little after takeoff (on the expert server) using a third-party app (which will be held nameless to protect the innocent) I set A/P, my speed at 220 knots, and unfortunately fat fingered my V/S. This caused me to go into a short (but not sweet) unrecoverable nose dive. Correcting the V/S did no good what so ever.
During my short plummet to earth, I shockingly noticed a yellow over-speed warning message. This is besides the point but I’ve read posts where there is supposed to be a sound when a warning or violation occurs. I do not recall hearing a sound.
OK, back to the main reason for the post. After embarrassingly ending my flight after the inevitable crash I noticed I had actually received a violation. This was like rubbing salt into a wound. How could I have crashed any slower?
So,there you go. I understand the “rule violated” but I do not understand why this rule would be applied in this particular scenario. I’m a grade 3, with 183 landings, and 4 violations so I have no concerns about how this affects my grade table. Again, I’m just questioning the rule application and what I could have done to keep it from occurring - other than getting skinnier fingers.
