I just got a speed violation but was well above 10,000 feet. Is this possible and if so, how? I was over speeding the aircraft at around 35,000 feet or so but but wasn’t aware there were limits at those altitudes.
I know the overspeed indicator drops as the altitude increases, but I couldn’t get back below the limit before the violation occurred. What puzzles me is that I’ve oversped several times and have never gotten a violation. Why now?I’m
You can get overspeed violations and pretty sure if traveling under 29,000 you can get some too, have to check tho
You can’t overspeed an aircraft above 10,000, you have to stay under the limit. (The limit is 350kts indicated or .86 at higher altitudes)
Oh ok. I didn’t know that. I will keep that in mind from now on. Thank you.
So you got a overspeed violation, stay at 280kts is my advice as you travel Fast and can quickly slow down
Because the aircraft can’t fly 500 knots IAS. It’s for realism.
Previously IF didn’t limit it and some people were cruising at 600-700 knots at 100% throttle which is just ludicrous. This may be why you didn’t get the warning before.
I just have have to watch the overspeed indicator more closely. Now that I know about it, I can prevent it in the future.
I never got one below 10,000 feet. Above 10,000 I’ve always stayed below15,000 feet where the overspeed limit doesn’t decrease. This latest incident however I was cruising at 37,000 feet where the overspeed limit is significantly less. My lack of knowledge regarding the overspeed rule above 10,000 feet is the source of the violation and as such, if greater care is taken to make sure the overspeed limit isn’t exceeded above that…I should be fine. Again…thank you all for the insight.
So I got an overspeed violation?! I’m trying to make grade 5 and this doesn’t help. I find it irritating that I made the mistake in the first place, but since I was unaware of the restriction…all I can do is try to prevent it from happening again. I take following the rules very seriously and would be grateful if you could be a little more appreciative of my position on this matter.
I got the warning before, just never above 10,000 feet.
I am just trying to help, I was giving a suggestion on how fast to travel. I am not wanting to argue
It has nothing to do with your overspeed indicator in the cockpit.
You are not allowed to exceed 550 kts ground speed below FL400.
Fighters can fly above that speed so long as they are above FL400.
Why? Because 757s don’t fly 700 kts from KATL to KNSH. It’s not realistic.
FL400, FL40 would be 4000 feet
You are correct, sir. Late for me, sorry.
You need to stay at 340 airspeed because at 350 you will get a overspeed violation
Couldn’t he’s just cruise at 349 instead?
You can however if it goes up your risking it so to be safe I would keep it at 340
No, it doesn’t make sense and I agree. The cruise speed of a 787 is about 492kts and the restrictions on most of the planes we have is 350. The Concorde cruises at 1,160kts. I think the made up restriction should be removed. If people want to speed around, let them go. If it’s a problem for ATC, don’t deal with them until they slow down. Put them in a holding pattern and they’ll be forced to slow down to 265kts above 14,000, 230kts from 6,000-14,000, and 200kts below 6,000. I don’t see what’s so hard about that?
Its 492 knots ground speed while the speed warning is 350 knots airspeed.
