HI All.The B1900 has a high idle or low idle setting on the pedestal. Can anyone tell me what conditions you use the different idle setting high or low?Thanks

My friend works for Great Lakes Airlines out of Denver and he said that their company policy is to use low idle 100% of the time. I've been on a Continental Connection B1900, where they used low idle for taxi, high idle for takeoff, low idle for cruise, and high idle for landing. It depends on the carrier.
