System ghosted for overspeeding

I’m about to post a few screenshots to show what I’m talking about. I dont really understand why I got 5 violations for speeding when I was only doing 280 knots above 10000ft. My device was charging while I was climbing, then above 10000ft I increased the speed to 280 knots.

The replay Dosnt really explain why I got ghosted,
If I’m reading it right someone else is being reported for speeding then I get the violations!!

Any advice INFC

THANKS

It’s a Q400, 280kts is a too much for that plane. I got vios too when I went 280 in it.

I think for a Q400 you should be cruising at 220/240 knots.

As this was a system ghost, this cannot be reversed. It seems like you were warned by the system to slow down, so why you didn’t slow down, that I do not know.

Like what @IFliPlanes said above^

The Q400 cannot handle speeds such as 280. You will notice that when below 10,000ft you can do up to 250kt but as soon as you reach above that it starts to get lesser (less than 250)

I usually aim for around a 220-230 knot cruise speed.

System ghost is not something that shows on your grade table and is not something we can physically erase.

The system ghost just makes you invisible to others due to the violation count.

Your replay should show your overspend warnings.

As everyone says, it is a Dash 8 with 280knts way too fast. A helpful guide: on the left of the captains seat the is a board stating what altitude with what speed. It is seriously helpful when flying this aircraft. I have the same feeling, I have had 9 violations in the past 9 days. This was one whilst I was in the shower (wtaf I know) and I saw a warning. My AP was fully on, (I need to see this replay), I take off and put AP on then get in the shower with my device in view. A couple of minutes later I look at my device and I am heavily banking to one side overspeeding facing South. I recovered and finished the 5 hour flight VIDP-VHHH. I there was no major turns in my flight plan, only a 10° one which it hadn’t even took. It wasnt stalling because it was climbing and was overspeeding whilst climbing, my AP SPD was on 240, like every flight below 10,000. I got 1 violation here. The other day I got a full on 5 in a Cirsprus helping another ATC in his journey to IFATC. My mum called me after take off, so I respectfully went over to her. Forgetting how powerful these engines were, and not knowing that the max spd below 10,000 was 200 knots, I came back to this… aarrrrggghhh. I have until 12th of June until I am back to grade 3. I fly about 2-5 times a day. I will be flying a 10 hour long haul at my 3am in around 4 hours. This is how much IF means to me 😂.

I have only had IF pro for around 3 and a half months.

As much as you want to scream at IF and say their not your fault violations are something that stick with you for a week so in the long run it isnt that bad…

Thanks for replying people. I just thought the q400 could handle more than 280 knots above 10000ft that’s why I had it cruising to 23000ft before I got ghosted.

It seems to be something I have to live with 😩

For future reference this is posted in the cockpit of the Dash 8

Same thing happened to me, I was flying from Auckland to Chicago in the 787-9 and I went to bed after climbing to 41,000 feet I was going M 0.84 and in the morning when I woke up on my screen it said I was ghosted. No idea what happened or how it happened but I will have to deal with being a grade 2 for a week.

On the speed in the HUD if you see those red dots/lines Do not go into them stay under them and you won’t get any violations. You were going to fast for the airframe

In the Q400, I always accelerate to 240kts as I climb, and then when I reach it I just put on the autopilot speed control and leave it at that. It works for the “below 250kts under 10,000ft” rule, but is also a decent speed for cruising at higher altitudes. Learnt this approach the hard way, like the OP.

Don’t leave your flight unattended during a climb!
