RE: Prop Speed Question

I'm not a prop, turboprop fan myself, but actually you "change" the propeller speed with PROP RPM handle that is usually between throttle and mixture. Though DC-3 has it in the left :P. Sure it doesnt change gears or something like that, but it changes the prop blades angle and basically you set pro...

RE: What's The Wheel On The Center Console?

Absolutely correct, the extremely neccessary pitch trim it indeed is. The "klak-klak-klak" sound comes with 727 and 737 type planes, where manual trimming is possible by turning the rotating wheels by hand. In normal situations, pilots use the electrical trim buttons on the yoke, then the wheel is r...

RE: Engine Start Question

Sure it may be possible when good pressure appears. Though they usually start two engines together with 4 engine jets, like A340 or 747, because their engines are smaller and a bit easier to run into RPM too.

RE: Emergency After Takeoff? *Photo*

I am not very sure if its fuel dumping. Its actually too close to the engine, imagine if one engine is on fire, the heat coming out from it will probably fire up the fuel and you are a burning stick in the air. Usually fuel is dumped from wingtips as I know? Though I cant find any other logical expl...

RE: Taxi Speed

Usually between 10-20 kts. If you are on a straight taxiway and long way to go, give around 20. In 90 degree turns, don't exceed 10! I believe that its up to pilot how fast he goes when backtracking. As its a runway, you can give as much as you can get out from the engines, but you'll have to slow i...
