Mooney Airspeed Indicator

Recommended Posts

The Mooney Bravo is supposed to cruise at 220kts, yet the airspeed indicator on the panel has VNE at 200kts, and a cruise range around 140-160kts. I could swear that the first few times I ran it a different airspeed indicator was displayed, but I uninstalled and reinstalled MSFS and the airspeed indicator is still the wrong one.Any ideas?

The Bravo's cruise is 220KTAS at FL250. That means indicated airspeed at cruise/cruise alt is much slower, well below the VNE. Don't expect to cruise at 220KTS at sea level--cruise figures are always stated in true airspeed, not indicated airspeed, and are usually qualified at a particular altitude.-John
