On the Autopilot its the up/down knob to govern speed in the flaky FLC mode or vertical rates in vertical speed mode.

The SPD/VS/pitch wheel on the APP is used to set the value of the speed bug. Located aft of the FMS in the center console or popped up AP. The digital readout automatically changes from IAS to Mach when climbing through the transition altitude.

 

btw, it appears the FLC is finally working to perfection with our latest update.

When climbing in FLC mode, my IAS never changes to mach. I climbed to FL41 in my last flight and it stays in IAS the whole time. I know it has a mach speed at the bottom of the speed tape but does anyone else have this problem?

 

Thanks, Kevin

You don't have a problem with the Mach speed showing properly. The bottom of the Airspeed tape is the only place you will see the Mach Speed.

No, also no auto throttle or FADEC Citations that have been upgraded with the + added to the name have some features added, but none of these smaller ones have Mach hold or auto throttle. The CJ2+ has FADEC.

Ray, yes, I know it. But someone started the conversation about mach speed hold so I was confused :)
