Airspeed error in DC4
« on: February 13, 2010, 03:23:17 PM »
Just bought meself a DC4, and as I'm putting in my routes, I've found that the airspeed in the sim is too low (Seattle to Denver shouldn't take 5.5 hours).  ;)   

Airspeed in AWS = 195 kts
Actual Airspeed = 240 kts (noted as 280 mph, which converts to 243 kts)

Tech data given via Virtual Aircraft Museum,

I'm not sure where that site got its data from, but the official FAA Type Certificate Data Sheet for the DC-4 (found here:$FILE/A-762.pdf) clearly states that VNE (never-exceed speed) is 261 knots TAS.  Maximum cruising speed is 218 knots.

The game lists the DC-4 at 195 knots, which is perfectly acceptable.

An excerpt, in case you don't want to sift through the whole PDF:
