Hi Infinite Flight Community I haven’t seen this topic on any of the forums so far and I believe this may be an interesting topic to grasp. Please reply with violations you’ve received inflight on the training or expert servers that looking back you think you could have easily avoided. These can be learning curves to overcome and avoidable mistakes you’ve made in the past, or even violations you received that you believe weren’t necessary. They can be level 1, level 2 etc.
- An avoidable violation I received while flying was on the expert server on a flight from Stockholm, Sweden to Dublin, Ireland. I had taken off and was climbing to cruising altitude smoothly. Autopilot was set and everything seemed to be under control. I left the controls at around 20,000 feet and didn’t come back until later. When I came back (supposedly mid-flight) I had received a violation. I finally realised that while setting the autopilot I had forgotten to set the altitude. This meant that while climbing with a verticale speed of 2,500fpm the aircraft was never going to stop climbing and reach a crushing altitude, since it was never assigned. This is why you should never leave the controls before reaching crushing altitude guys!!! Looking back at the replay after passing above 42,000 feet the Airbus A320-200 dramatically fell out of the sky, I had received an over speed violation and was kicked from the server. All this before the aircraft even had time to hit the Swedish ground… 🤦🏼♂️🤦🏼♂️
