    ABGC Accelerating Above 250 Knots at 8000 Feet

    Hi, Enrico.
    First of all, can I say that the Airbus software gets better and better
    after each new release
    One thing that stands out at the moment, however, is that in managed mode
    the aircraft accelerates to its cruise speed after climbing through 8,000
    feet. Am I right in assuming that it should be accelerating above 250 knots
    after 10,000 feet?

    Best wishes,

    Darren Sugden (www.sugden.karoo.net)

    Still long ways to go.

    Check the vertical revision... if it religiously happens at 8000 ft, can it

    be that it is set to that value? On the F-PLN page press the right LSK next

    to a waypoint, the restriction is set on 2L I think.

    Ciao

    Thanks, Enrico

    You were right. There was a 8000 ft restriction. I never thought of looking
    there! You learn something new every day!

    Many many thanks,

    Darren
