Is there a speed limit in class b airspace? (some class b is above 10,000msl.)
Well if other aircraft at your altitude (and going same direction) are all doing 280 kt GS and you are doing 330 kt GS... guess what? You are doing 300 KIAS and (especially in ATL) you are getting a "Speeding Ticket"... It isn't hard for them to figure out....

I was flying through NY and on with BOS center.. Someone asked the controller if a "maintain max forward speed" was a clearance to do more than 250 below 10K, and the controller said officially 'NO", but there isn't any way he's going to know what you're really doing, or even care enough to say anything. Obviously not all controllers think alike..
the FARs have no mention of speed limits (outside of 91.117 which says nothing about Class B having a speed limit).
SFO area at the weekend - ATC were making a point of telling departing heavies (jets) from SFO and OAK to keep speed below 250.
Falcon Capt said:Atlanta has been to only TRACON that has been real anal about the speed limit, Chicago has queried a couple pilots on occasion... but haven't been near as anal, usually it is a "Nxxxx say speed" and the reply is "250 kts" as you are yanking the thrust levers back to idle.
