Speed limit

Why is the speed limit under 10’000 260 instead of 250 in IF? I’ve noticed that it warns you when you past 260, not 250.

I believe it’s because if you set the autopilot at 250 it’s (or are hand flying) your speed might vary a little bit depending on what you’re doing. This gives some leeway so it won’t keep giving warning/violations for going a few knots over 250 kts.

This is just my educated guess, I am not 100% sure if this is the reason why.


Ahh I see, thank you
