  6. 6) While in Class B airspace below 2,500' AGL, lower than 10,000' MSL and within 4 NM of the airport, what is your maximum speed?

    Unlike other forms of airspace, such as Class C airports, where the speed limit is 200 knots when below 2,500' AGL and within 4 NM of the airport, Class B airspace does not have a maximum speed. However, any time you're less than 10'000 MSL feet in the CONUS, your maximum speed is 250 knots, regardless of airspace, unless your plane cannot safely operate that slowly. (FAR 91.117)
