The GPS has several modes optimised for different use cases. The default one
is suitable for ground-based vehicles, and sanity checks its output including
speed and altitude. In a plane you are at insane speed and altitude for a
ground vehicle ;-) I don't think ogpsd has an option to change this, so a
feature request may be in order.
