hey there,

Sp i just took off and then went to eat something. When I came back it turned out I went to 40k feet even though my alt. was on FL260. So that means I was overspeeding. I have 6 violations now.
This is something that shouldn‘t happen when you have AP on. What should I do?

Did the Altitude Button have an orange-like border around it? If not, then you didnt have the altitude set.

hi, in fact he did not speak of your experience, he just asked a question, because you can have an A / P triggered and if the altitude does not have the orange core in it, there is no way to control the altitude, this may have happened, everybody makes mistakes

Ok. Well I guess I can close this topic? Or should I wait?

it’s always good to contact a moderator for this type of problem!

Except there’s nothing that can be done support-wise if no one was watching. You can’t troubleshoot something no one saw. Over thousands upon thousands of flights, not once have I ever had a flight climb 14k feet past the altitude setting. In order to troubleshoot something like that, there’d need to be some input from someone that watched it happen, preferably with screenshots or something.

I would suggest always sticking with your flight at least until you reach your cruising altitude. That will always prevent the tape sneaking down unnoticed and things like that. But as far as I’m aware, through live flights and extensive testing, I can’t remember anyone ever noting that the plane climbed almost 15000 feet past the set altitude. If it was a bug, it certainly would be reported more than once.

I have accidentally tapped on the ALT button and left V/S as is, which would explain what happened here. That can happen. But that isn’t a bug, just me fat-fingering a button. And setting your device down to go eat is the perfect opportunity for your thumb to accidentally hit that button. I know that’s when I usually accidentally hit something. That’s a much more plausible explanation than an altitude bug that isn’t being massively reported.
