(2) A person may operate an aircraft at an indicated airspeed greater than the airspeeds referred to in subsection (1) if the aircraft is being operated in accordance with a special flight operations certificate – special aviation event issued pursuant to section 603.02.
(3) If the minimum safe airspeed for the flight configuration of an aircraft is greater than the airspeed referred to in subsection (1), the aircraft shall be operated at the minimum safe airspeed.
As for what the controller intended, I can't say for sure, but my gut tells me that s/he would not have been upset if you exceeded 250 kts, but they cannot legally ask you to, nor can they give you permission to do so, so I think that you were being given a hint without explicitly breaking any rules. That being said, if you did exceed 250, and somebody called you on it, you have no ground to stand on if you try to say "ATC told me to".Old version of CARS 602.32 (Valid 2006-2010) wrote:(1) Subject to subsection (2), no person shall operate an aircraft below 10,000 feet ASL at an indicated airspeed of more than 250 knots.

I may be wrong but I thought the speed limit was for incoming aircraft, not taking off. I don't fly an aircraft that even comes close to 250 kts so perhaps someone here on the forum who does can weigh in.pelmet wrote:So what do they mean when they clear us for a high speed climb?
Thanks. It seems to be a standard clearance in many other countries, but for the US and Canada, I think that ATC is not allowed to approve this. That is why I was surprised when he said it.Braun wrote:As a controller I have yet to speak with another controller who didn't know the 250 below 10000' rule. I doubt it is lack of knowledge. That being said I have no idea what he means by this, I have never heard a controller use this before...
Same diff, there is no such sector in the TCU, everyone knew that you were just "getting the nod".
Most of the time, and still today, the guys just wanted to see what she could do.
For arrivals, we get the speed waived all the time. You just have to know how to ask, and you have to know that the guy you are asking... knows how to answer.
I'd be more interested to hear about the guys that are getting pulled from the glass recently because they don't know the difference between a high speed contact and a 172 base to final...what rules/regulations to apply to the maneuver observed, instead of the other way around, and if you're not sure, have a sip of coffee and pretend it didn't happen.
No bent tin, no sin...
I've heard of guys getting ticketed for 'keeping the speed' up for controllers because they've had boys from TC in the back monitoring.

Different areas of the country may do or expect different things. But in my specialty, "keep the speed up" most certainly does not imply we want you to break the CAR speed rules.
