 whistle:


I would have thought "An unrealistic, sudden drop in displayed airspeed at high actual airspeed. would have been coped with by common sense in the pilot, who presumably notice that they are not squashed against the window by an instantaneous deceleration of several hundred miles per hour?

The fact that they need it written down as a procedure worries me much more,

I mostly despair

A microburst will cause a sudden change in altitude but not airspeed.

But it's indicated airspeed they're talking about and a microburst screws that a treat
