As you can see this Southwest plane is going 516 knots at 27,455 feet. When I fly around 30,000 feet. I can only go 349 knots or less. Is this part of the new update or at I missing something.
That’s a ground speed reading I believe. You can easily reach 516 knots GS.
you know how every car has a top speed it can reach? yea… similar way
Flights in LiveFlight are tracked in ‘Groundspeed’
You are looking at the ‘Indicated Airspeed’ on your HUD.
Look for the little ‘GS’ and it will have a number next to it. Thats your groundspeed that you can compare…
If you’re not sure how Indicated Airspeed Versus True Airspeed Versus Groundspeed works, google it, and you’ll get a good understanding of the differences.
As already been said, it displays ground speed. So does FlightAware, FlightRadar24 and other similar services.
If David were to fly 516kts IAS at that altitude, he would be at Mach 2+… Good luck with that in a 738.
Thanks everyone. Just learned something. You always learn something every day! Good Luck in your future flights for Global!✈️
P.S: this is not me. It’s from YouTube.
Yes. That is overspeeding. This was prior to the red line tape that we have on the airspeed indicator now.
