Flight today similar to a few others lately; This time KMSY to KTLH.
Took off but the only directional ATC gave me was on approach. Neither did I get 'No speed restriction' after achieving 10,000'.
Is this right?
You should try reading the manual. It's quite helpful at times!
% Probability of a 'No Speed Restriction' under 10K - Normally aircraft
are restricted to a maximum of 250 knots below 10,000’, although at times
ATC can lift this restriction. If you set this to zero it turns the feature off
completely, setting it from 1-100 allows you to set the probability of getting
(A) As of version 3.7. The probability factor is set to something other than
(B) Your aircraft is capable of going faster than 250 knots
(C) You are still in climb mode (i.e. you haven't reached your cruise altitude)
(D) You are IFR
(E) Your altitude is between 3000' and 9000' (AGL), which is also subject to a
randomizing factor applied using your percentage setting. However, if you
have a 'heavy' call-sign you will bypass the probability factor and WILL get
the 'no speed' call.
A bit of a moan is that whenever I land these days I always get 'Taxi to Terminal'. Never a parking spot.
Again reading the manual is also quite helpful in this matter too.
Gate parking only - This option will ensure ATC will always send you
to a Gate rather than a Parking location when you receive taxi
instructions at your destination airport.
Please note: If you already have a gate/parking location 'reserved' for
any airport then that will take precedence over this option. Also,
please remember, if you select this option and arrive at an airport
where (a) you haven't reserved a gate and (b) there are no free gates
available, you will not be sent to a parking location but will instead
simply receive the default taxi instructions 'Taxi to Terminal'
