Just thought I'd let you all know that last night I finally sat left seat and taxied my first CRJ at ORD. We made it in one piece too. Parking wasn't too pretty, but I ended up on the mark, so it's all good. Big grin

UAL-

Pretty cool an't it...!!

Always remember to taxi at a 'brisk walk' speed. If you loose breaks or steering you want to be able to stop quickly using only your TR's. There have been too many accidents with MX during taxi.....don't let yourself be the next.

The closest I ever got was brake riding one when I was working for EV. That was fun! My supervisor broke the rules down for me quickly:

Rule 1: Don't touch any buttons!
Rule 2: When we get to the gate, just stand on the pedals really hard to engage the parking brakes.

I was amazed at how fast you pick up your speed with just idle thrust. Granted, we were empty and had a light fuel load. I only moved the throttles once, for breakaway. The rest of the way it was just quick bursts of brake to keep the speed down. I've been warned that the CRJ steering kicks off in tight turns sometimes, and to be ready to re-cycle the nosewheel steering switch.
