Hi, this is probably a REALLY stupid question but iv been wondering for a while now where abouts in the cockpit the brakes of an aircraft are, the ones when the plane is taxiing on the ground i mean. First i thought the pedals but they are for the rudder aren't they??
thanks alot in advance

They are activated using the rudder pedals by pushing the top part of the pedals.

The Pedals when pushed back-forth alternatively [mechanism] operate the Rudder.
When toe pressure applied,operates the Brakes.

Think of the brighter side!
