speed when turning while taxiing

imagine Guest

Hi, it's me again.

How fast should you go when taxiing and turning while taxiing? I am having some trouble turning at low speeds, so I have been going at 50 and hitting the brakes to turn.

Thanks for the help.

Well I'm no pro but I set throttles at abour 1/4 and bump the brakes to slow and turn....Also you can press F11 to aid in left turns,,and press F12 for right turns...But if going to fast will tip you over...I suggust enabling crashes till you get the hang of it....Tiss what I did.....

Except for high speed strait taxiing in an airliner, you should keep your speed down around 10-15knots, slower on real sharp turns. When I do 90 deg. turns from rnwy to taxi lanes in the 737, 777, md83,etc. I keep it between 5-8 knots.

Hehe, the general rule I use, is go as fast as you can. Those clearances aren't valid forever, you know...

I've got turning a 747 on two sets of undercarriage down to a fine art!

Hi all you flyers. I have found (on small planes) that it takes a little practice to get the right feel for brakes and throttle while taxiing. I have not flown a large jet yet, so really can't say.

Happy fling all.
