Radar contact speed restrictions

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've noticed that aside from the 250 knot speed restrictions given by approach on initial contact I am not getting the 230/210/180 speed restrictions on downwind/base/final vectors.

This was working in the past but no more.

What could be the issue?

hello,

I assume this at an add on airport? if so an uninstall then re install normally does the trick.

if that doesn't work it may be the aircraft's FMC database, have you updated the FMC at all? There just might not be any speed  restrictions any more at that airport.

 

cheers,

Dylan

Hi Dylan,

The FMC is updated but from my understanding the speed restrictions in radar contact are not dependent on the FMC data.

They are hard coded and related directly to the legs during the approach.

Thanks for clarifying, its just I remember I was getting them on every approach and now I get them only during ~20% of my approaches.

Perhaps it's aircraft dependent. Flying a 737-800 I rarely hear the speed constraints.
