Correct me if I’m mistaken, but I guess the allowed airspeed is NOT 350kts above 10.000feet for the DH8D.
It is lower. Based on that theory you were overspending when setting the limit at 345kts.

I also got one of my violations due to overspeed in a DH8D when setting the limit to 320kts.

Can someone confirm the theory? What is the allowed airspeed for the DH8D above 10.000feet?

Well the higher you go, the lower the limit. Off the top of my head, the ceiling on the DH8 is 24000ft, with that I set the speed to 260kts, which is about 10kts below the overspeed warning at that altitude.

Winds may of caused this. Winds can play a big part in speeds

winds will affect your ground it will never affect your airspeed. I am sure he was getting ground and air speed confused

What plane where you flying?

he mentioned it in the beginning

I think violations are Not removed… After One week it’s Gone but you’ll See the Violation in Book …

To avoid the violations … Take off at 220 kts and after you rise from 10000 feet, speed up to 320 kts for the Large aircrafts , small aircraft to 300 kts.

I was against the wind as well so it couldn’t have played too much of a role, either way I was under 350 on ground speed

This is exactly the airspeed I was at

R you absolutely sure you arnt confusing True Air speed with Ground Speed. I really think u r confusing them for each other
