Arrow Class B

We're in Class Bravo airspace, at 11,000 MSL, what are our speed restrictions, cloud clearances, and visibilities we must abide by?

No speed restrictions? Are you kidding me? I could be wrong but I am pretty sure I am not but doesn't 91.117 state that the max indicated airspeed in Class B Airspace is 200 KIAS?

Here is the FAR. Plus doesnt Class B usually only go up to 10000' MSL? How are you in class B at 11000 MSL?

(c) No person may operate an aircraft in the airspace underlying a Class B airspace area designated for an airport or in a VFR corridor designated through such a Class B airspace area, at an indicated airspeed of more than 200 knots (230 mph).

The devil is in the details. 10,000 and above = no practical speed restriction. (Mach one)

Under Class Bravo, you may not fly faster than 200 knots indicated. Think about busy high altitude airports. There is no speed restrictions IN class B airspace, unless you are in a VFR corridor, told by ATC, or of course, under 10,000 MSL.

AHHHH I see. That's right that speed restriction is underlying the class B airspace. I forgot about that. That's what happens when your Seminole never goes fast enough to worry about it.

I am still lost at what class B airspace is at 11000 MSL though?

Class B doesn't always end at 10,000 MSL. There is no standard for Class B. It is designed differently for every airport. Out in Denver, the Class B could easily be at 11,000 MSL.
