Hey Everyone! I need some help. I was doing a flight to Cancun (MMUN) and after I started my decent I went to take a shower but when I returned to my phone I received 5 violations because I was going too fast under 10,000 ft. I have 4 events this week including this one and now i’m really stressed. So i went to the support tab but when i clicked the link to email them it didn’t work. Does anyone know if they indeed can take away the violations? If u have any information please let me know. Thank You!

Hey, this isn’t quite the thread for this, but unfortunately unless violations were caused due to a glitch in the app, they will not be removed. Take this time to maybe think over being a little more careful and watching your aircraft in the critical stages of flight (pushback to cruise alt and descent to engines off). Sorry I can’t be of more help but the rules are the rules.
