View Full Version : Overspeed warnings...help....
03-04-2002, 11:07 AM
I keep getting overspeed warning at about 330 kts. on all aircraft. even Concorde! I imagine there is some sort of setting to fix this, any help would be appreciated. Also, I have noticed that I keep having to contact "New york Approach" (or any approach) as often as every few minutes while flying IFR through the flight planner. It's a different freq. so I thought maybe I'm contacting different centers. Is this consistent with real life ATC? One more question, I was flying into Denver Intl. IFR the other day and was told that my IFR was cancelled. The weather was below 1/4 Mile visibility (almost NO visibility). Does FS2K2 know this and deny airport access when visibility is below a certain distance?..I was maintaining instructions from ATC perfectly so I dont think I was doing anything wrong! Thanks for the Help......

At what altitude are you getting the warnings? 330 KIAS is a legitimate airspeed structural limit in the Learjet I believe, and other jets are in similar ranges. This is coupled with a Mach limit for higher altitudes, and the lower of the two speeds applies. You cannot fly at the stated maximum cruise speed at low altitude.
I don't know about the Concord, never having tried it out.

Remember, To be able to travel Fast you need to be at altitude. Load up the 737 and look at the IAS dial http://www.flightsim.com/dcforum/User_files/3c83940c1d4b2c12.jpg Do you see that red and White bar? That is the maximum speed bar, go past that speed and you will get an overspeed warning. As you climb to a higher altitude this bar will slowly move clockwise. (and the reverse for decending)
As for having your IFR plan cancelled. ATC expect you to keep EXACTLY on your assigned altitude and heading even if you are two degrees out you will get your IFR cancelled or if you are 10ft out you will get your IFR cancelled. (Bloody perfectionists)

Have you set your altimeter to 29.92 above 18000 ft.? What do they instruct you to do before cancelling IFR? Also, are you aware of the difference between IAS and TAS? at 40000ft for example, at the indicated airspeed of 300kts the true airspeed is 600kts.
