Cruise Speed from ACARS/SimBrief
« on: Sun 05 Aug 2018, 17:49 »
I noticed today having completed my first flight from Southampton to Edinburgh and taking too long, that the Cruise Speed for the Dash 8 was being given as 322knots - N0322F180.

Am I reading this wrong because even when I give the routing into ACARS for the reverse journey as:

EGPH N0236F190 TLA6C TLA N864 DCS UN864 SUBUK DCT KEPAD UL151 PEPUL EAS1E EGHI

The resulting OFP comes back with: N0322F190.

Any thoughts would be appreciated thanks.

Sean

I’ll check which profile were using when generating them, however this could be an issue I need to raise with simbrief themselves.

I've checked the profile and it seems it defaults within simbrief and that whilst you can select a different one theyre all more than the dash cruise speed. I will follow up with an email to simbrief

Cheers Chris, can you also check max cruise altitude, sure I had a 26000ft come up the other day but didn't keep the file.

Thanks
